This is a baseline survey of Nawiri, two United States Agency for International Development Bureau of Humanitarian Assistance Resilience Food Security Activities (RFSAs) in Kenya. This survey covered 3,890 households across 136 sub-locations in the RFSAs’ areas of implementation and collected data for 37 indicators across nine thematic areas: agriculture; food security; poverty; maternal and child health and nutrition; water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH); gender and cash; gender, credit, and community participation; resilience; and COVID-19 impacts and coping strategies.
The Nawiri RFSAs in Kenya are implemented in the arid and semi-arid land counties of Isiolo and Marsabit by Catholic Relief Services (CRS) and in Samburu and Turkana by Mercy Corps. In October–November 2021, TANGO International, with its local partner Kimetrica, conducted a baseline survey. The key survey findings are described below for each thematic area, highlighting opportunities for growth and improvement.
