Comprehensive Food Security and Vulnerability Assessment
Guinea’s Country Office recently finalized the “Comprehensive Food Security and Vulnerability Assessment” (CFSVA). It was conducted jointly with the Ministry of Agriculture and is the first assessment in Guinea that provides prefecture-level information on food security. The survey shows that one in three households in Guinea is food insecure with disparities between regions. In some prefectures in Forest Guinea, food insecurity reaches 56%. Overall, food insecurity has not improved in Guinea since the last survey in 2009. The report was validated by the Ministry of Agriculture in Conakry on 18 December. The CFSVA has provided an opportunity to widen the debate on food security and to raise awareness for the issue among the Government and technical and financial partners. The report will guide and frame our action in the months to come.
