Food Security Follow-up Assessment

North-West Floods of September 2012

FSC TWG Presentation on findings, June 6 2013


Assessment re cap

Assessment Re-cap

  • Objectives:

    • Re-assess the impact of flooding on food security and livelihoods six months after flooding

    • Assess how the affected population has recovered

    • Determine the existing needs (if any) of the affected population

  • Assessment summary:

    • April 1-6th, 8 agencies

    • 26 unions of 10 upazila of 5 districts (Bogra, Gaibandah, Jamalpur, Kurigram & Sirajgonj)

    • Puporsive sampling of worst affected areas

    • Assessment tools were measuring similar indicators to Sept. JNA


Key results fs assessment sept 12

Key Results - FS Assessment Sept. ‘12

  • Major Needs

    • Communities = Food, Agr. Inputs & Shelter Repair

    • Assessment = Food Sec & Livelihoods 47 unions (165,132 HH)

    • Recommendations = Food support, u/c cash transfers, CFW/CFT, cash grant/provision of seeds & fertiliser for farming, nutrition causal analysis in Kurigram, strengthen health facility capacity to deliver essential nutrition interventions and detection of acute malnutrition, scale up community based nutrition promotion activities

  • Agriculture

    • 17/29 Uz severely damaged agriculture

    • 27% cultivated land submerged

    • 89% affected land was sown for Aman paddy. 80% expected to be lost

    • 24/29 Uz damaged fisheries resources


Food security follow up assessment

Key Results - FS Assessment Sept. ‘12

  • Food Sec & Livelihood

    • Ag. day labourers, sml & marginal farmers most affected

    •  income opportunities

    •  wage rate of Ag. day labourers (Jam, Kuri, Gaib)

    • Lean season  high food price &  purchasing capacity vul. HH

  • Coping Strategies

    • Selling assets, migration,  meal size and frequency

    •  HH food stock & income if no alt. cultivation likely employment crisis for Ag. day labourers


Food security follow up assessment

Key Results by Sector – JNA April ’13


Key results district sector jna april 13

Key Results District & Sector – JNA April ‘13


Key findings agriculture

Key Findings – Agriculture

  • Poor Boro prospects (<50%) in Gaib, Kuri, Jam & Sirj b/c cold wave & limited investment cap

  • 24%  Boro wholesale price  daily labourer hard to buy


Key findings livelihoods

Key Findings – Livelihoods


Key findings food consumption score

Key Findings – Food Consumption Score

  • Average expense gap to reach good FCS = 1281 BDT/ month


Key findings nutrition

Key Findings – Nutrition

  • GAM rate all districts = 14.4% (incl 4% SAM)

  • GAM in Kurigram very high

  • 60% did not exclusively breastfeed for 6 months

  • 35% children 6-23 months did not eat minimum meal frequency

  • Changes to eating patterns noted since floods ( meal size & frequency). 10% have resumed to normal


Key findings coping strategies

Key Findings – Coping Strategies

Jan-March ‘13


Key findings prospects

Key Findings – Prospects


Ongoing need exposed to repeated shocks

Ongoing Need – Exposed to repeated shocks

  • 3 floods in 2012, cold wave, frequent hartals


Ongoing need exposed to repeated shocks1

Ongoing Need – Exposed to repeated shocks

  • Reason for less Boro harvest = 60% cold wave, 17% limited investment capacity

  • Hartals/ Political unrest hampered the labor market

  • Monsoon is knocking at the door!


Ongoing need comparison between narri deshari vs non beneficiary

Ongoing Need – Comparison between NARRI/DeSHARIvs Non-beneficiary

  • 3 out of 5 districts were covered by NARRI/deSHARI programs

  • 75% of the HH in unions where programs present were NARRI/ DeSHARI beneficiaries

  • FSC Borderline is still alarming in those areas despite support, which means longer term interventions are required for improving Food Consumption


Recommendations short term

Recommendations – short term

  • At least 48,000 HH have not recovered their assets as before the flood

  • Priority districts = Kurigram, Gaibandah & Jamalpur

  • Cash support with longer term focus on resilience

  • Continue scheme construction (infrastructure) with DRR lens

  • Partners in Kurigram to conduct nutrition causal analysis to identify context specific risks and aggravating factors for under nutrition. More in depth analysis on prevalence data via MUAC vs WHZ


Recommendations longer term

Recommendations – longer term

  • Livelihood recovery, DRR strengthening and integrated food security program

  • Food Security and Livelihoods

    • Livelihood options identification (market analysis, cost-benefit analysis)

    • Market development (market extension process, value chain, market linkage)

    • Training (climate resilient livelihood skills training, risk reduction approaches, business development)

    • Schemes to support livelihood investments (e.g. Group savings, joint marketing initiatives, joint IGA activities etc.)


Recommendations longer term1

Recommendations – longer term

  • Agriculture

    • Crop specific training (fertilizer, weed, disease mgt, post harvest technology, climate-resilient varieties etc.)

    • Local technical volunteers (linking service providers to farmers, technical advice etc.)

  • Nutrition

    • Strengthen the capacity of health facilities to deliver essential nutrition interventions (e.g. IYCF counseling, nutrition & hygeine promotion, micronutrient supplememtation) and in detection, screening and referral of acute malnutrition

    • Scale up community based nutrition promotion activities to improve knowledge and practice of IYCF
