Desk Review: The effects of Food Aid on Household Migration Patterns and Implications for Emergency Food Assessments

Many of the people that the World Food Programme (WFP) assists in its emergency programmes have migrated as a result of a natural or human-made disaster. This report examines migration as it is practiced by people not only as a result of a crisis, but also as a strategy to reduce vulnerability and maximise income prior to or during a crisis. It proposes guidelines for assessing the role of migration as part of WFP’s emergency food security assessments (EFSAs), and discusses the programming implications of incorporating migration-sensitive analysis into emergency assessments.
