Examining the use of nutritional indicators in surveillance systems

Research reports

The aim of this paper is to improve understanding of the use of nutritional indicators in surveillance systems that feed into Food Insecurity and Vulnerability Information Mapping Systems (FIVIMS) both at global and at national level1. The focus is on
nutritional indicators (i.e. anthropometry and indicators of micronutrient status) rather than the total range of indicators often collected as part of nutritional surveillance systems (e.g. indicators of food production, food prices, etc).
