Prevalence and Depth of Hunger in Poor Households Nairobi and Adequacy of Cash Transferred

Prevalence and Depth of Hunger in Poor Households Nairobi and Adequacy of Cash Transferred

 

Author(s):  Mercy Kamau, J. Olwande and J. Githuku
Introduction

The aims of this brief are two-fold. We begin by drawing attention to food insecurity in urban areas by using empirical evidence on food insecurity among households in Nairobi. Secondly, we assess whether the cash transferred to food insecure households was adequate to reduce hunger. Guiding questions were: i. By how much would households need to be subsidized in order to meet shortfall in dietary energy intake? How much more maize grain or maize meal needs to be consumed to meet the shortfall in energy intake? What is the cost of achieving this? ii. How does the estimated cost of supplementing household’s dietary energy intake compare with the cash transferred to poor and vulnerable households in Nairobi? iii. Which is the cheaper option for meeting dietary energy deficit: maize grain or maize meal?
