The Food Economy Group (FEG) is on the leading edge of livelihoods-based food security and policy analysis, and complex process facilitation.

For over twenty years our work throughout Africa, Asia and Latin America has focused on linking decision makers to the realities faced by poor people, across rural and urban communities, in pastoral and agricultural settings, and within both fragile states and more stable communities.

FEG is the world’s leading expert in Household Economy Analysis (HEA), an internationally-recognized livelihoods analysis framework. We use our HEA expertise to offer a range of services to decision makers in the humanitarian and development communities, including: support for improved program design; famine early warning; impact evaluation; resilience measurement; and graduation modelling in social protection programs.
