HCP’s Cameron McCordic and Bruce Frayne coauthor new paper about food security implications of disrupted access to basic services
HCP’s Cameron McCordic and Bruce Frayne coauthor new paper with Naomi Sunu and Clare Williamson which is entitled “The Household Food Security Implications of Disrupted Access to Basic Services in Five Cities in the Global South”. The paper is published on the journal Land. It proposes a method for building a multidimensional index of urban household food security. It then assesses the predictive relationship between the consistency of household resource access and the index using data from five cities. The findings show that the resource access disruptions inflicted by COVID-19 will likely have a heterogeneous impact on urban food security dependent upon the affected resource and the city in which a given household resides.
