The comprehensive food security and vulnerability analysis (CFSVA) findings reveal that poor food consumption, a proxy indicator for food security, is strongly associated with the ownership of productive assets and vulnerability to shocks affecting crops and livestock. Households with poor consumption exp erienced greater exposure to plant diseases and animal pests, are more likely to be headed by women, and have low expenditure and wealth index scores. Food -insecure households own fewer livestock, cultivate fewer crops and do not use modern inputs.
The WFP country programme will focus on the following two priorities:
1) Food security and nutrition support (Strategic Objectives 2, 4 and 5) for people living in environmentally fragile and chronically food-insecure areas who face recurrent hunger periods, struggle to access food and to meet their basic food and nutrition needs, are more vulnerable to shocks and require direct assistance. Focused around productive safety nets and nutrition, activities include food for education (FFE), food for assets (FFA) and nutrition support.
2) Investments in community food and nutrition security (Strategic Objectives 2 and 5) for communities that are able to meet their basic food and nutrition needs but require further investment to ensure future food security and reduced vulnerability. Activities include enabling government policy for hunger and nutrition solutions, linking small producers to markets and strengthening food security information systems.
This ninth budget revision to the Tanzania Country Programme 200200 will extend the project by six months to 30 June 2017 to align Country Office programming to the Country Strategy Plan process which is scheduled to be completed by June 2017
