    This fact sheet describes a course that introduces the Food Insecurity Experience Scale (FIES) in the context of reporting on the SDG Indicator 2.1.2, and explains how it can be used to measure food security. The course provides guidance on the collection and analysis of data, and on how the information provided by the FIES can be used to inform and guide policy.

    The State of Food Insecurity in the World (SOFI) 2014
    Strengthening the enabling environment for food security and nutrition
    2014
    The State of Food Insecurity in the World 2014 presents updated estimates of undernourishment and progress towards the Millennium Development Goal (MDG) and World Food Summit (WFS) hunger targets. A stock-taking of where we stand on reducing hunger and malnutrition shows that progress in hunger reduction at the global level and in many countries has continued but that substantial additional effort is needed in others. The 2014 report also presents further insights into the suite of food security indicators introduced in 2013 and analyses in greater depth the dimensions of food security – availability, access, stability and utilization. By measuring food security across these dimensions, the suite of indicators can provide a detailed picture of the food security and nutrition challenges in a country, thus assisting in the design of targeted food security and nutrition interventions. Sustained political commitment at the highest level is a prerequisite for hunger eradication. It entails placing food security and nutrition at the top of the political agenda and creating an enabling environment for improving food security and nutrition. This year’s report examines the diverse experiences of seven countries, with a specific focus on the enabling environment for food security and nutrition that reflects commitment and capacities across four dimensions: policies, programmes and legal frameworks; mobilization of human and financial resources; coordination mechanisms and partnerships; and evidence-based decision-making.

    On 25 September 2015, the 193 member states of the United Nations adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, including 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) with 169 targets and 230 indicators. SDG 14 - Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources for sustainable development is one of these goals. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) is the custodian agency for four of the ten SDG 14 indicators, including SDG 14.b.1 - Progress by countries in the degree of application of a legal/regulatory/policy/institutional framework which recognizes and protects access rights for small-scale fisheries. In this context, the workshop, Exploring SDG 14.b and its Proposed Indicator 14.b.1, helped raise awareness of SDG 14.b and the proposed indicator 14.b.1. The workshop explored the indicator methodology and related issues on data and information sources, analysis and reporting including the use of the e-learning platform specifically created for this proposed indicator and identified capacity development needs in relation to reporting on SDG 14.b. The workshop brought together 17 external participants representing governments, regional organizations and small-scale fisheries civil society organizations (CSO), as well as FAO staff. The workshop used several different types of sessions to reach the expected results, which were to create awareness of SDG 14.b and its indicator 14.b.1, explore the methodology for reporting on the indicator and to identify related capacity development needs. In addition to FAO presentations introducing key concepts, there were three country presentations (Tonga, Côte d’Ivoire and Bangladesh), two regional organization presentations (General Fisheries Commission for the Mediterranean and Central American Fisheries and Aquaculture Organization) and one joint presentation by smallscale fisheries CSOs (World Forum of Fish Harvesters and Fish Workers, World Forum of Fisher Peoples and International Collective in Support of Fishworkers). In smaller groups, the participants explored the FAO SDG 14b e-learning course and discussed key concepts and issues that are important for achieving SDG 14.b.
