Surveying the food security, nutrition, and agricultural landscape
We address world hunger through innovative programs that build community resilience and focus on the underlying causes and outcomes of food security and nutrition. Worldwide, we’ve helped national and international organizations understand the critical links between food security; nutrition, water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH); agriculture; resilience; women’s empowerment; and poverty.
Our multi-sector approach ensures that strong evidence informs the design and implementation of food security programs for evidence-based decision making. Clients have included USAID, the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS), the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the Scaling Up Nutrition Initiative (SUN), and UNICEF.
Standardizing measurement guidance
Leading population-based surveys (PBS)
Our strength lies in the design, implementation, and analysis of population-based household surveys to collect data on household demographics, poverty, food insecurity, nutrition, and women’s empowerment.
We lead complex PBS surveys for USAID’s Demographic and Health Survey (DHS) Program, the Feed the Future Initiative, Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance (BHA), and agriculture surveys for UNOPS Livelihoods and Food Security Fund (LIFT) agriculture program.
