Summary: Food and nutrition security has emerged as a primary development goal at<BR>the top of the global agenda. In 2012 the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) methodology was integrated into a userfriendly software named ADePT-Food Security Module (ADePT-FSM). This book aims to provide the essential guidelines of the use of ADePT-FSM and of its background methodology. It is organized into five chapters: chapter 1 introduces the background concepts of food security and food consumption data; chapter 2 describes the methodology used to derive different food security indicators; chapter 3 discusses the analysis of the derived food security statistics; chapter 4 provides guidelines on how to prepare the input datasets; and chapter 5 explains how to install and use ADePT-FSM. Over the past years, increasing attention has been paid to national household surveys by the international community in order to collect reliable and timely information on food consumption for the purpose of food security assessment. National household surveys are in fact the only available source of information to assess the distribution of food consumption within a country. ADePT-FSM aims to derive consistent and readily available food security statistics from food consumption data collected in national househoudl surveys.
