In fiscal year 2019, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) Office of Food for Peace (FFP) funded two 5-year resilience food security activities (RFSAs) in the Isiolo, Marsabit, Samburu, and Turkana counties of Kenya. In 2020, FFP merged with the Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance (OFDA) to form the Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance (BHA) to streamline USAID humanitarian responses. BHA provides life-saving humanitarian emergency and non-emergency aid—including food, water, shelter, sanitation and hygiene, and nutrition services—to the world’s most vulnerable and hardest-to-reach populations. The goal of the 2019 RFSA awards is to sustainably reduce levels of acute malnutrition among vulnerable populations.
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.
