8-Presenting results

In presenting the results of your assessment, indicate the following information:

Analysis and presentation of results


- definition of population and areas affected and at risk;
- identification of main causes;
- information on current food access and projected food availability in the future;
- information on child and adult nutritional status, including micro-nutrient deficiencies;
- information on recent child mortality (including causes); and
- summary of existing response capacity, identifying gaps and possible areas to build on quickly, including immediate institutional strengthening and training.

Conclusions and recommendations


- possible response options, including food, water and sanitation measures, immunization and vitamin A distribution;

- recommended procedures for setting up health and nutrition surveillance of the at-risk populations and programme monitoring; and

- suggestions for further field investigations, to better estimate the size of the affected population, to improve possible targeting of food assistance, and to provide a better quality of baseline data for monitoring the effectiveness of response.
