  • to provide a reliable and detailed assessment of the current food security and vulnerability situation of the North Kordofan population;
  • to assess some of the causes and risk factors for food insecurity and vulnerability and;
  • to identify pockets of vulnerability where assistance and targeting may be required in the future.
