The purpose of this report is to provide a general overview of Tanzania’s food security situation in recent years. It aims to form an information base to support decision making and policy design with respect to food security. This report follows the Comprehensive Food Security Vulnerability Analysis (CFSVA) undertaken in coordination with the government of Tanzania in 2010.
The 2012 report focuses primarily on data generated by the Tanzania National Panel Survey (NPS) conducted as part of the World Bank Living Standards Measurement Survey (LSMS) in collaboration with the Tanzania National Bureau of Statistics (NBS). The findings presented are from the 2008-09 and 2010-11 surveys.
A distinctive feature of the National Panel Survey is that data are generated for the same set of selected households in both phases of the study. This study used this rich information to track households’ food security over the two-year period.
The main objective of this study was to measure levels, patterns and trends of food insecurity indicators in both Tanzania Mainland and Zanzibar. The study presents findings at the administrative zone level for all indicators in Tanzania and Zanzibar.
