Monitoring project impact on the most vulnerable portion of the population has been a central objective of Phase II of Africare's Zondoma Food Security Initiative in Burkina Faso. Given this focus, this paper provides the results of an analysis (conducted in 2005) of two methods of classifying vulnerable households: the Months of Adequate Household Food Provisioning (MAHFP) and a questionnaire-based method for assessing food security and vulnerability developed by Cornell University and the Food and Nutrition Technical Assistance (FANTA) project.
