Food Security Framework | Gaps in Knowledge
- Aspects of urban vulnerability, as there is an indication that the vulnerability in peri-urban and urban areas is deepening.
- Most of the markets often monitored by SIMA and partners in Mozambique have developed enormously over time. Reevaluation and reclassification of the markets are deemed necessary to better understand the role of markets in household and regional food security.
- The extent to which markets and prices play an important role in alleviating poor and middle household food insecurity, including cross-border trade, and the implications of this trade in the overall food security and livelihoods of the households.
- The link between HIV/AIDS and food security, thus far broadly known.
Limited understanding of:
- Reasons for high chronic malnutrition among children under five years mostly in the north, a surplus region.
- Criteria for differentiating between chronic and temporary food insecurity.
