Food and Nutrition Security Assessment in Sudan

Southern Sudan Commission for Census Statistics and Evaluation, Central Bureau of Statistics, Sudan Integrated Food Security Information for Action (SIFSA)

This report provides a summary analysis of food insecurity in Sudan and by States, area of residence and different functional groups in the country. It presents a suite of food security indicators including the Millennium Development Goal Indicator 1.9 on the prevalence of undernourishment at the national and sub national levels. This information is useful in locating and identifying food insecure population groups in Sudan for better targeted food policies, programmes and interventions. It also provides inputs for the design and planning of the Poverty Reduction Strategy Papers (PRSP) and serve as a baseline for the assessment and monitoring of food security indicators in Sudan. The report is open to debate and the SSA would be grateful to receive comments or suggestions concerning its contents and findings to improve the understanding of the food security situation in Sudan.
