World Vision Swaziland launches FANRPAN Hunger and Vulnerability Index (HVI) project in Mpolonjeni
9 October 2008
World Vision Swaziland

FANRPAN in partnership with World Vision Swaziland have successfully launched the Household Assets Vulnerability Assessment (HAVA), previously Househould Vulnerability Index (HVI), project at community level. The HAVA project was launched at Mpolonjeni, a World Vision Swaziland Area Development Programme (ADP) site on the 9th of October 2008. Swaziland is the first country to launch the HAVA project at community level following the launch of the pilot phase of the project in Mbabane, Swaziland on 29 May 2008

The event was attended by delegates from various departments from the Government of Swaziland, (including the Central Statistics Office, the Disaster Management Department), traditional leaders, men, women and youth from the community; representatives from World Vision, FANRPAN and CANGO.

World Vision Swaziland will now be able to convert its many years of field-level presence into a robust and dynamic grassroots' livelihoods database. With appropriate analysis, World Vision will be able to generate and package compelling evidence for policy advocacy. Evidence generated from the pilot sites will be shared at the FANRPAN national multi-stakeholder dialogue platforms, with the synthesis from the three countries shared with senior policy makers through the SADC, COMESA and AU-NEPAD platforms.
