The doctoral project seeks to develop a critical framework for assessing food security quantification. Food insecurity and hunger is still endemic in developing countries. According to the most used food security indicator, 800 million people remain undernourished globally, down 170 million from two decades ago. Such estimates however depend on the methodology used to quantify food security. Measurement methods also impact the form, targeting, scale and timing of an aid response.
