    This guide was developed as part of an ECHO Funded project entitled: Developing a Response Analysis Framework for Food Security Emergencies. The funding is part of the ECHO global capacity building fund. The proposal to develop a Response Analysis Framework for food security was grounded in the understanding that whilst situation analysis of food security has improved in recent years, this has not been systematically translated into more appropriate and justified responses to food se curity problems. Globally, a number of reviews have recognised the gap that exists in the link between food security situation and forecast analysis and programming. Response analysis processes were a focus of The Re-thinking Food Security Forum (hosted by FAO in Rome in April 2008) which brought together INGOs, academia WFP and FAO. The Forum highlighted the need for response analysis processes to be inclusive, and for interventions to be informed by a full review of options. In 2009, consultations held at DG ECHO on Capacity Building Policy and the Future of Thematic Funding confirmed that food security information systems and approaches do “not yet include improved response analysis for programming support”1 ECHO observed that “There is an inadequate link between food security analysis and response...”.

    The proposal to develop a Response Analysis Framework for food security in emergencies was grounded in the understanding that whilst situation analysis of food security has improved in recent years (through initiatives such as World Food Programmeâ¿¿s (WFP) Strengthening Emergency Needs Assessment Capacity (SENAC) project and the Integrated Phase Classification (IPC)), this has not been systematically translated into more appropriate and justified responses to food security problems. G lobally, a number of reviews have recognised the gap that exists in the link between food security situation and forecast analysis and programming. Response analysis was a focus of The Re-thinking Food Security Forum (Rome April 2008) which brought together INGOs, WFP and FAO. The Forum highlighted the need for response analysis processes to be inclusive, and for interventions to be informed by a full review of options. In 2009, consultations held at DG ECHO on Capacity Building Policy and the Future of Thematic Funding confirmed that information systems such as IPC, SENAC, Humanitarian Health and Nutrition Tracking Service (HNTS) and market analysis, do â¿¿not yet include improved response analysis for programming supportâ¿¿1 ECHO observed that â¿¿There is an inadequate link between food security analysis and response...â¿¿. It was as in reaction to this that Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) developed a project designed to try and add ress this link. The result was an 18-month ECHO funded project entitled â¿¿Developing a Response Analysis Framework for Food Security Emergenciesâ¿¿. This collection of discussion papers is one of the products of that project. For a full list of products produced by the project, readers are encouraged to visit the FAO and Emergencies website http://www.fao.org/emergencies and scroll down the right-hand column to Response Analysis, where copies of all documents and products can be downl oaded.

    Land Policy Development in an African Context
    Lessons Learned from Selected Experiences
    2009
    Also available in:

    Land Tenure Working Paper 14: Growing land scarcity and concern about land-related conflicts and rising levels of rural impoverishment have brought land to the fore once more. The main difference with the recent past is the wide spectrum of actors who want to take part in the elaboration of the land policies, as well as the more and more recognized need to root the proposals in the particular context of each specific country. The paper, focused on African experiences, starts by discussing the importance of Land Policy Issues at Regional Level. It reviews the evolution in thinking regarding land policy ending up with the identification of the critical issues being faced by Africa today whilst remembering the role that FAO can play in promoting a sound partnership between governments and their citizens in the twenty-first century. The core of the document is represented by three different case studies (Sudan, Burkina-Faso and Mozambique) which serve to draw some lessons which can be applied for future interventions in similar contexts. In particular the diversity of policy objectives and the need to embed policy development in other processes are analyzed. The land question in post-conflict situations is also treated in detail as well as how to secure land rights in both customary and statutory regimes. Specific attention is given to the rights of women, which is becoming anincreasingly important issue in Africa and not only there, and specific lessons in land conflict ma nagement.
