Task Force on Assessment, Monitoring and Evaluation

The SCN Task Force on Assessment, Monitoring and Evaluation, co-chaired by FAO and WFP, was created in March 2006, and is currently made up of 14 members belonging to the 3 constituents of the SCN. Its current workplan, developed in November 2007, sets out the Task Force’s three main cross-cutting principles and objectives.

The Task Force met in January 2008 to review its workplan and to prepare for the 35th Session of the SCN. A full report of the meeting is available here.

A number of key short- and medium-term priority outputs were defined during the meeting. So far, the TF has worked on:

Over the next six months, the TF plans to produce (i) a review paper on stunting, (ii) a study/review of selected indicators and thresholds used in the IPC and (iii) support the revision of the SMART Food Security module.
