Agriculture, Food Security, and Nutrition

Food insecurity and malnutrition, primarily in low- and middle-income countries, continue to be a global challenge, exacerbated by COVID-19. In its latest report on food security and nutrition, The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization estimated that, in 2020, nearly two billion people faced moderate or severe food insecurity, disproportionately affecting women and children.

Our Work

AIR brings vast experience designing and implementing mixed-methods studies, randomized controlled trials, quasi-experimental studies, performance evaluations, third-party monitoring, and costing analysis with an emphasis on food security, agriculture, and nutrition. In humanitarian settings with limited access to survey data, AIR uses a combination of technologically advanced data collection methods with traditional observant monitoring to track trends in food prices and food security.
