In focus: The Single Registry

The Single Registry is a key output of the Complementarity Initiative and the Social Protection area of the UNDAF. The Complementarity Initiative is a 4 year project supported by WFP to ensure that Kenya’s food assistance programmes in the arid and semi-arid lands are integrated into Kenya’s safety nets system and aligned with the National Social Protection Policy.

A New Approach to Community-Based Targeting

WFP has retargeted its relief programmes across the Arid areas, in response to the findings of the Government’s Short Rains Assessment. This offered an opportunity to test WFP’s revised Community Based Targeting Guide, which includes a combined targeting and electronic registration exercise that will allow food assistance programmes to integrate with the Single Registry.

The rapid growth and urbanization of Kenya’s population has resulted in a changing poverty and food security environment in high-density urban areas. Urban dwellers represent an increasingly important share of the food insecure and malnourished yet little is known about the characteristics of urban food insecurity and malnutrition necessitating the need to undertake a baseline survey that would comprehensively analyse the urban food security and vulnerability in Kenya.
