CARE International commissioned a six country study that was aimed at providing an overview and analysis of the policies affecting and influencing Food Security and Nutrition but also Climate Change Resilience among the farming communities. The analysis has made an attempt to analyse the major policies in as far these issues are concerned and also looked at some of the international and regional policy frameworks guiding the policies at the local level.
CARE believes that the success or failure of any policy is to greater extent influenced by the political, social, and economic environment in which they are being implemented. An attempt has also been made to analyse the farming communities, gender characteristics underpinning policy decision and also probably affecting policy implementation.
This report in general provides a guide and an overview of the policy environment in as far as food and nutrition security and climate change resilience is concerned.
