Guiding Framework

The Guiding Framework for Dietary-related Food Security Indicators has been designed to support program implementers and policy makers at all levels to identify food security-related dietary indicators, locate existing data sources, access guidelines for indicator construction, and provide concrete examples of analytical applications of these indicators for policy and programmatic relevant questions. The Guiding Framework is a dynamic tool that will continue to evolve during the life of the INDDEX Project. Please send any feedback to inddex@tufts.edu.
