New FANTA Technical Guide on Measuring Household Food Consumption

Many private voluntary organisations (PVOs) are engaged in projects aimed at improving food security and household nutrition worldwide. Increasingly they are being asked to monitor and evaluate the impact of their interventions. FANTA has completed the 2005 revised edition of Measuring Household Food Consumption: A Technical Guide. The guide describes the process and procedures for collecting information to assess the food-intake requirements of a household and a step-by-step analysis of the food consumed. The newly revised Appendices also provide detailed information about analysing the data.
