Following the recommendation of experts gathered in the Committee on World Food Security (CFS) Round Table on hunger measurement, hosted at FAO headquarters in September 2011, an initial set of indicators aiming to capture various aspects of food insecurity is presented here. While most of these indicators are already being produced and published by the FAO and other international organizations, this database introduces a number of new indicators to fill some of the recognized gaps in food security information systems, most notably in the ability to capture the socio-economic dimensions of food insecurity.
