TWG Action Plan
55. The TWG reported that 10 activities
were planned to be implemented during the period, and satisfactory
progress was reported on 5 activities. The remaining 5 are behind the
Establish and support a permanent Secretariat for
the TWGFSN within the Council of Agricultural and Rural Development
(CARD) to facilitate inter-ministerial networking and coordination on
Mainstream FSN into the sectoral planning of
the relevant ministries and the PIP.
Provide Inputs during the 1st review/monitoring of
the NSDP with regard to FSN.
Update and disseminate the Food Security Atlas
to concerned stakeholders so that their interventions can be focused on
areas which are the most at risk.
Support FIVIMS in Cambodia and link it to
existing Information Systems for FSN relevant data and information (CamInfo,
Food Security Atlas, FSNIS). This activity is behind schedule due to the
fact that no funding for FIVIMS support was available between
12/2005-6/2006. However, an EC/FAO Food Security Programme Phase II –
Food Security Information for Action started in July 2006 and its
supports have been extended to FIVIMS. A workshop on FSN information
systems was also organized on 5th July 2006 by CARD and MAFF to
streamline various initiatives on FSN-related information management and
avoid doubling of efforts and achieve synergies. As a result, a workshop
conclusion was developed and agreed in TWG-FSN Meeting on 3rd Aug 2006.
As recommendation, the agreed points stated in the Conclusion should
be followed by concerned agencies. This needs a follow-up.
Maintain, update and provide input to the food
security and nutrition information system (FSNIS) in CARD. The Food
Security and Nutrition Information (FSNIS) in CARD is regularly
maintained and updated with the support from FAO-Netherlands Partnership
Programme (FNPP) on Food Security Policy for Poverty Reduction in
Cambodia. This FSNIS is one of the most regularly updated government
websites in Cambodia. To facilitate the work of the Website
Management Team in CARD, all relevant stakeholders are requested to
cooperate and provide necessary documents upon the requests.
Develop capacity, procedures and mechanism to more
comprehensively incorporate FSN issues into the local government
planning process (behind schedule). With supports of FAO-Netherlands
Partnership Programme (FNPP) on Food Security Policy for Poverty
Reduction in Cambodia, capacity building at decentralized level and
better integration of FSN issues in the decentralized planning in pilot
province of Takeo will be started in Oct 2006
Extend the National Programme for Food Security
and Poverty Reduction (NPFSPR). This activity is behind schedule due
to the lack of fund for implementation. National Programme for Household
Food Security and Poverty Reduction (NPHFSPR), basket of $51million for
2007 – 2011, have been formulated with FAO’s supports, and approved by
MAFF in August 2006. The document with a covering letter was sent by
MAFF to various donors to seek funding for the programme implementation.
The TWG asked GDCC to help lobby donor for funding.
Develop a social safety net policy to ensure Food
Security and Nutrition for the most vulnerable groups of the population
(JMI)—behind schedule. The reason is that a proposal has been developed
but funding has not yet been identified to support the development of a
safety net policy for vulnerable groups.
Develop a Nutrition Surveillance System to monitor
FSN (JMI)—behind schedule. Funding for implementation of nutritional
surveillance will be identified. A preliminary draft proposal has been
developed but the funding source has not yet been identified. A more
precise and detailed document is currently being developed by a task
force comprising of core members of TWG (2 meetings were already held).
Joint Monitoring Indicators
56. Develop a Nutrition Surveillance
System to monitor FSN. A preliminary draft proposal has been developed
and discussed in the TWG-FSN Meeting on 3rd Aug 2006 and, a Task Force
comprising of core members of TWG was set up to further elaborate the
proposal. Funding sources are not yet identified.
57. Develop a social safety net
policy to ensure Food Security and Nutrition for the most vulnerable
groups of the population. Rationale for and objectives of a safety net
policy, with NCDM as the main actor, was discussed in the TWG. However,
funding has not yet been identified.
Implementation status of the H-A-R Action Plan
58. The TWG did not report on this
59. The TWG only reported that
resources have been partly mobilized.
