ESRF and ECDPM consultation workshop presenting Module 2: Tanzania food security profile. It will explain Policy Coherence for Development and give a brief introduction to this pilot project: its history, scope and objectives, the methodology used and the partners involved.

The aim of Module 2 of this PCD Impact Assessment is to establish a comprehensive but straightforward profile of the country’s food security situation and the key underlying dynamics that determine that situation. The module thus serves as a mapping exercise, first to identify the socio-economic groups, which are most prone to seasonal and chronic food insecurity. Secondly, it maps the key interests, characteristics and vulnerabilities of the country’s food security system, including the agro-food sector, prevailing trade patterns and the regulatory policy environment. Mapping the challenges and bottlenecks in Tanzania’s food security system then allows for the identification of relevant OECD country policies with a potential impact, positive or negative, on those issues of concern in the Tanzanian food security system.

ECDPM’s Brecht Lein and Fabien Tondel gave a presentation on “PCD Impact Assessment on Food Security in Tanzania”.  View the presentation.
