Rapid Household Food Security Assessment
The unprecedented crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic hit the Kyrgyz Republic in March 2020 leading to an extensive negative impact on food security, economic development and the population’s well-being. The cumulative effects of the shocks faced by people and institutions in the country are still subject to a full evaluation while the need for tailored actions to address these effects is urgent. The objective of the rapid assessment is to provide timely information on household food security and the degree of exposure felt by households to the shocks and stresses caused by the COVID-19 crisis. This will help to inform the response and recovery actions required by development partners and the Government of the Kyrgyz Republic in the short- and medium-term.
