Food Security Score for Kenya
Article 43, Section (1)(c) of the Bill of Rights of the Kenya Constitution (2010) states that: Every person has the right to be free from hunger, and to have adequate food of acceptable quality. To monitor progress and targeting interventions towards realization of this goal, an easy to-use, but scientifically sound measure of food security is required. The objective of this paper is to construct such measure that will subsequently constitute a Food Security Score (henceforth, FSS) for Kenya. This Food Security Score will enable the classification of the food security status of each county in the country. The food security score study consulted one adult respondent in each household on the experiences, practices and behaviours of household members that have a bearing on food insecurity.
