Fact Sheet 7: National Food Security Assessment Tool

The FSS integrates the Right to Food into sustainability certification schemes by translating it into criteria that can be verified during a sustainability audit.


The Food Security Standard (FSS) provides a set of practicable and measurable criteria to incorporate the Human Right to Adequate Food into sustainability standards for any kind of agricultural commodities. It also includes different hands-on tools to assess the compliance with the FSS criteria within regular audits for sustainability certification. Prior to an audit, auditors are expected to gain a broad understanding of the food security context in the country. For this purpose, the National Food Security Assessment tool (NaFSA tool) has been developed. Auditors have confirmed, that the 27 national food security indicators included in the tool provide crucial information to understand the overall food security context and help to prepare for the audit.
