Sahel Bulletin: Biomass production at mid-rainy season 2021
Guide for conducting the FNS-IS analysis
Published : July 2019
The Food Crisis Prevention Network (RPCA) initiated a regional policy dialogue to improve the availability and quality of information on the food and nutrition situation in the Sahel and West Africa. The aim is to boost food and nutrition information systems (FNS-ISs) to provide more reliable, consensual and timely information for decision-making. This guide is part of a regional study aimed at assessing the current state of the existing FNS-IS and analysing their financial structure. The study is conducted by the ICON-Institute and co-ordinated by CILSS and the SWAC/OECD Secretariat. It is a key priority for the RPCA reform plan and is funded by the European Union through the project “Improving the governance of resilience, food and nutrition security, and sustainable agriculture in West Africa (PAGR-SANAD). The study’s key findings will be discussed at the 35th RPCA annual meeting, scheduled to take place in Conakry, Guinea, on 2-4 December 2019.
