The course material is designed to facilitate learners to increase efficiency and effective functioning in their work situations because each unit of both courses requires application of what has been learned. Thus, these three lessons provide learners with: a definition for baseline and action-oriented assessments, describing their differences in terms of purpose, use of information and the resources required for each; the features of different baseline assessment methods, providing criteria to determine which methods may be most appropriate under specific food security contexts; and details on the two types of regular food security assessments: early warning and monitoring food security trends.
