1. What types of FSI mechanisms/tools are in use to track market access, prices, and nutrition at a household level?

We will begin our virtual dialogue discussing the types of tools in place in various contexts to track households' ability to obtain nutritious food, including their resilience to shocks. Both governments and development partners have stepped up efforts to increase and improve food security information in recent years and a number of tools have been developed to improve the collection and use of food and nutrition security-related data. For example, the Food Security Information Network (FSIN) is a global initiative co-sponsored by FAO, WFP and IFPRI to strengthen food and nutrition security information systems for producing reliable and accurate data to guide analysis and decision-making. For the examples given here, it will be helpful to provide context (country) and scale of coverage.
