Market information and food insecurity response analysis (MIFIRA) test report
This paper outlines the importance and rationale for agencies to undertake a “response analysis” before choosing an appropriate programme delivery mechanism to a humanitarian situation. The Market Information and Food Insecurity Response Analysis (MIFRA) framework is introduced. This provides a logically sequenced set of questions, and corresponding analytical tools to help operational agencies anticipate the likely impact of alternative responses (food and/or cash based) at a household level and local market level, and thereby identify the response that best fits a given food insecurity context.
