WP1 - Vulnerability Assessment:

Work in Niamey focuses on a new methodology developed to investigate aspects of resilience in very poor urban contexts where economic assets are universally constrained. It was developed to explore scope for adapting a rural food security monitoring tool, the Household Economy Approach (HEA), to urban contexts. This is a food and water security early warning and vulnerability assessment tool used throughout the Sahel region and with extension to East Africa now being adapted to urban contexts including work in Niamey with UN High Commission for Refugees on water and food security, flooding and conflict stress. 

Additional work being undertaken in Niamey includes urban textures analysis and a DesInventar study. The DesInventar methodology explicitly designed to draw out extensive as well as intensive loss data and underlying social vulnerability.
