Food Security as a Modality for Change

The Food Security as a Modality for Change study is an attempt to shift the way in which food and cash based projects are designed, implemented, monitored and evaluated. The purpose of the Food Security as a Modality for Change study is threefold:

  1. Develop and test a clear theory of change narrative for all future food assistance, nutrition and livelihoods recovery projects;
  2. Document the change Plan is achieving with food and cash based projects; and
  3. Shift from output based/short term results and activities to outcome based/long term results.

It is a process aimed at helping relevant actors understand how food and cash based projects impact communities, beyond just receipt of goods. Using this information as a base relevant actors will be able to shift food and cash based projects from short term, targeted activities, to outcome based programs that fit into a broader strategic framework.

The Food Security as a Modality for Change study seeks to support the conceptualisation of a clear narrative for gender transformational change for food and cash based interventions.
