food agriculture and policy analysis network fanrpan
Food, Agriculture and Policy Analysis Network (FANRPAN)
  • Aim
    • To promote appropriate agricultural and natural resources policy in order to reduce poverty, increase food security and enhance sustainable agricultural development in the SADC region
  • Vision
    • A food secure southern Africa free from hunger and poverty
  • Mission
    • To promote evidence based policy development in the Food Agriculture and Natural Resources sector
  • How
    • facilitating linkages and partnerships between government and civil society
    • building the capacity for policy analysis and policy dialogue in southern Africa
    • Create capacity to demand evidence for policy development
1 the household vulnerability index hvi
1. The Household Vulnerability Index (HVI)

The challenge of multiple vulnerabilities faced by rural communities, e.g. HIV/AIDS, climate change

  • Measuring household vulnerability
  • Evidence to inform policy development and response interventions

HVI tool

  • A tool to assess household vulnerability on the basis of the five livelihoods assets (human, financial, natural, physical and social)
  • Measures the vulnerability of households and communities to the impact of diseases and shocks such as HIV/AIDS, erratic weather patterns and poverty
  • A total of 15 variables (called dimensions) are assessed, and a statistical score is calculated for each household.
  • The result, the HVI, is used to classify households into 3 categories: low ,moderate and high vulnerability
  • HVI tool pilot in Lesotho, Swaziland and Zimbabwe (2009 – 2010)

  • Lesotho: UNICEF to use HVI to target 60,000 of the 200,000 OVCs in the country for social protection (cash grants, bursaries, nutrition support, etc.)
  • FANRPAN: to use HVI data for modelling climate change impact scenarios. Results to be used to generate evidence-based policies and programmes to assist vulnerable households to manage the risk and vulnerability associated with climate change
  • Support academia and research institutes to engage in policy analysis
  • Stimulate policy makers to demand research evidence to inform policy processes
