The Coping Strategies Index: Field Methods Manual
This manual describes the Coping Strategies Index (CSI) tool and how to develop and use it. The original manual, written in 2003, was based on a collaborative research project, implemented by WFP and CARE in Kenya. It was developed in Uganda, Ghana, and Kenya but has now been used for early warning and food security monitoring and assessment in at least nine other African countries and several in the Middle East and Asia.
