The FSVA includes 13 indicators based on a review of data availability at the district level and their ability to measure various aspects of food and nutrition security. The FSVA divides these indicators into two sets: chronic food and nutrition insecurity and transitory food insecurity. Within chronic, indicators measure food availability, food access, and food utilization. The transitory indicators describe climatic and environmental factors that affect food insecurity from an availability and access perspective. The nine indicators that relate to chronic food insecurity are combined into a single composite indicator to describe the overall district food security classification.
Dataset shows rice production in various irrigation schemes over the last five years. The total area cropped increased by 25.1 per cent from 21.9 thousand hectares in 2017 to 27.4 thousand hectares in 2018. This was mainly due to an increase in area under irrigation brought about by sufficient irrigation water in Mwea scheme, which accounted for 84.3 per cent of the total area cropped. The number of plot holders in all schemes also increased by 4.0 per cent to 14,028 in 2018. During the same period, the volume of Paddy produced increased by 38.7 per cent from 81.2 thousand tonnes in 2017 to 112.6 thousand tonnes in 2018 due to availability of irrigation water. The gross value of output increased by 59.1 per cent to KSh 7.0 billion in 2018. Similarly, payments to plot holders increased from KSh 2.2 billion in 2017 to KSh 3.8 billion in 2018.
