Uganda - Comprehensive Food Security and Vulnerability Analysis (CFSVA), April 2013

The Uganda 2013 CFSVA was produced by the Uganda Bureau of Statistics in collaboration with the World Food Programme. The data for the analysis was from the Uganda National Panel Survey (UNPS), which surveyed 2,563 households from September 2009 to August 2010.
This UNPS is a part of the Living Standards Measurement Study-Integrated Surveys on Agriculture (LSMS-ISA), a household survey project implemented by a team at the Development Research Group at the World Bank.  The LSMS-ISA project collaborates with the national statistics offices in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) to design and implement systems of multi-topic, nationally representative panel household surveys with a strong focus on agriculture. 
This CFSVA establishes the distribution of food insecure and vulnerable households in terms of the human, social, physical and natural capital as well as detailing the various risks that households are exposed to and the coping mechanisms they employ. It evaluates the causal relationships between factors that determine food and nutrition security and the effects of seasonality on food security outcomes.
