The Specialisation in Food Security: Assessment and Action is an extension of the FAO's Distance Learning course in Food Security Information for Decision Making. In this Specialisation students are introduced to the concepts and tools used in food security analysis. As a starting point, students will consider food security and its relationship to vulnerability, hunger, malnutrition and poverty. Guidelines on how to interpret and use conceptual frameworks for analysing food security are then reviewed. Other topics include: guidance in assessing different kinds of information systems related to food security analysis; designing, writing and increasing the impact of food security reports in different contexts; and commonly used methods to assess food availability at regional, national and local levels. The Specialisation in Food Security: Assessment and Action is taught by an international team of individuals with extensive field experience. With this training, students will understand food security and be better prepared to undertake and support food security work in their communities. This Specialisation in Food Security: Assessment and Action is an elective in the Master's in Food, Society and International Food Governance. Credits: 15 ECTS Start: 15 March 2017 Degree: Food Security: Assessment and Action Language: English Objectives Define food security as a broad concept used to determine people's general well-being. Understand the concept of vulnerability and how it is applied to food security. Appreciate the importance of food security analysis to trigger appropriate action to address food insecurity. Understand the need for identifying the underlying causes and characteristics of food insecurity. Understand the basic measures to monitor and evaluate targeting activities. Acknowledge food security as a policy issue cutting across different sectors. Competencies These courses were developed to support capacity building and on-the-job training and workshops in national and local food security information systems and networks. The courses are open to everyone but were designed to target: Mid-level managers, technical staff and field personnel who are involved in the collection, management, analysis, and reporting of food security information. Planners, policy formulators and programme managers who are involved in monitoring progress in poverty reduction, and meeting food security goals and targets. Providing students with the necessary tools for improving their employability, giving them the right to knowledge and education to be successful in the different occupations they will have during their lives, is a fundamental purpose of our postgraduate programmes.
