CFSAM South Sudan, May 2015 Print E-mail

FAO/WFP have released the Crop and Food Security Assessment Mission for South Sudan, Special Report, May 2015. AA International Ltd provided the consultant agronomist to this mission, which was conducted during February 2015, and was based on months of field work, in which AA International Ltd was also integrally involved.

This CFSAM reviewed findings of eight earlier crop assessment missions, conducted at harvest time, in 46 counties in nine states.

All county assessment missions were carried out using AA International’s Pictorial Evaluation Tool (PET) standard operating procedures: The teams recorded about ninety thousand spot yield estimates of growing crops and conducted 670 farmer case-studies. In addition, 466 transects were collected via vehicle journeys through agricultural areas. This information was triangulated with 80 key informant interviews with senior Ministry staff, county and payam officials, and the staff of NGOs, agricultural banks and international agencies based in the field. Growing conditions reported in case-studies and interviews were compared against remote sensed meteorological data.
