Monitoring food distributions: a Zambia Red Cross Society experience

The Zambia Red Cross Society (ZRCS) undertook extensive food distributions in response to the droughts in 2002 and 2003. The International Federation recruited a food security delegate to help National Societies in the region to increase their capacity to monitor the impact of food distributions. This case study presents the experience of the ZRCS, who were able to develop such a system with the delegate’s help, which meant it could better demonstrate the impact of its work and would be able to refine distributions to improve the quality of programming. Published in 2012.
