The World Food Program (WFP) - United Nations International Children's
Emergency Fund (UNICEF) food and nutrition security field analysis was
commissioned to study the potential for triangulation of data systems
between WFP and UNICEF with an attempt to assess whether these data
systems picked up the effects and provided a better understanding of the
global financial crisis on the most vulnerable in five countries,
As a means to establish the areas of potential information systems
available and collaborations, this field study covered a review of
information gathering, analysis and reporting systems employed by WFP
and UNICEF, individually and jointly, and examined other systems
utilized by the government and a selection of other stakeholder systems.
The analysis was expected to establish whether the data reported under
the indicators from these systems (WFP, UNICEF, Government, etc.) is
compatible for cross linking, integration, triangulation and joint
analysis and to what extent data are able to inform decision makers in a
timely manner on food and nutrition security, household response and the
changing vulnerability of communities impacted by shocks.
Recommendations on the challenge and gaps for remedial action to enhance
the information utility and improve the information system are presented
at the end of the analysis.
