Introducing the CARI (Consolidated Approach for Reporting Indicators of Food Security)

The Consolidated Approach for Reporting Indicators of Food Security (or CARI)  is a WFP method used to analyse and report the level of food insecurity within a population. 

 

Under the CARI approach, each surveyed household is classified into one of four food security categories.  This classification is based on the household’s current status of food security (using food consumption indicators) and their coping capacity (using indicators measuring economic vulnerability and asset depletion).
