Dear colleague,

It is surprising to receive a note from you who is associated with OXFAM. OXFAM is the agency who has developed the Household Food Economy Approach for rapid food assessment.

Dear collegue,

Thank you for your replies regarding food needs assessment guidelines/good practices. I am well aware of the household food economy analysis developed by SCF and have got the relevant document related to it. Unfortunately this approach requires trained people which are not always available and more time than usually allocated to rapid food assessment. Therefore, I was wondering whether there was some other recommended methodologies/existing frameworks or whether we should develop our own internal guidelines.

Best regards,


Dominique Brunet, OXFAM-GB
