Emergency Food Security & Livelihoods (EFSL) 48-hour Assessment Tool
The purpose of this tool is to obtain a quick understanding of the emergency food security and livelihood situation, within the first few days after a rapid-onset disaster. The tool is independent of other multi-sectoral assessments and collects information only on food security and livelihoods (EFSL).
This tool is designed specifically for:
- humanitarian staff with no or limited technical skills, for example humanitarian program managers
- food security and livelihoods technical staff with little experience of rapid-onset disasters in urban and rural contexts, for example staff usually involved in long-term livelihood programming
The EFSL training materials can be used to train participants to confidently apply the ‘48-hour Assessment tool’ to assess the impact of a shock/hazard on an affected population’s food security and livelihoods. The training materials can be accessed on the Emergency Capacity Building Project website.
