Description A study to explore whether the data from the World Food Program and UNICEF are compatible, allowing for integrated and richer analysis of vulnerability and food and nutrition security. In a variety of countries, the two agencies collect data on a variety of food and nutrition security indicators through their data-collection and monitoring systems: some systems are managed jointly by the agencies, others are managed in collaboration with local governments and a few were conducted independently by WFP. The WFP-UNICEF RIVAF study aimed to inform headquarter-lead capacity building efforts and provide guidance to the respective country offices, including those in the five countries studied as well as others seeking to engage in similar activities. Emphasis was placed on the efficacy of the systems with respect to the provision of critical information for decision makers as opposed to an assessment of interagency structures and interactions.
