The Integrated Context Analysis (ICA) is a process of consultations supported by mapped-out data that produces a strategic plan describing where different combinations of programme themes are appropriate to achieve goals of reducing food insecurity and climate related shock risk.
The ICA combines multi-year food security trends with natural shock risk data to highlight sub-national areas for different programme strategies. Food security trend maps shows areas where safety nets can address regular food insecurity, and others where shocks make recovery more important. Climate-related natural shock risk maps show where disaster risk reduction, preparedness and early warning efforts can complement food-security objectives. In addition to mapped data on subjects including nutrition, gender, livelihoods and resilience can enrich theme-level strategic planning.
