Finding the urban crisis tipping point

November 21, 2013

"NGOs ACF, Concern and Oxfam have reviewed food security targeting methodologies to identify the best existing emergency food security indicators and how to adapt them to urban settings. They published their results through the Active Learning Network for Accountability and Practice (ALNAP) in July 2013. Their recommendations include: undertaking assessments by neighbourhood; establishing baseline data to identify cost of living, crime rates, and migration rates before and after shocks; and using technology such as digital mapping tools to collect and organize information."
