WFP Food Security Reports in Iraq
Food security reports on Iraq are issued by WFP as an attempt to investigate and understand the causes of poverty and hunger and establish means to achieving progress on poverty eradication. By joint efforts of COSIT in the Ministry of Planning and Development Cooperation (MoPDC), Sulaymani Statistics Directorate, the Ministry of Health’s Nutrition Research Institute (NRI) and WFP, a baseline study was carried out evaluating the household food security in Iraq. This was done in the latter part of 2003 and the results were published in 2004. A follow-up survey was conducted two years later and published in May 2006. The third survey, conducted in November-December 2007, builds upon previous collaboration, and includes all 18 governorates of Iraq.
