Farnpan developed a statistical index the Household Vulnerability Index for quantifying household vulnerability. The HVI is a composite measure that comprises 15 indicators of household vulnerability. On the basis of the 15 indicators, a statistical score is calculated for each household resultant index is used to categorizes households on the basis of their level of vulnerability. The FFC and other consortium partners (i.e. FARNPAN) are interested in evaluating the vulnerability of households to climate change disaster risk. This is in line with 2013/14 recommendation of institutionalizing the use of vulnerability indices. The major objectives of this assignment are as follows; To use the HVI tool to evaluate vulnerability of rural households to natural disasters, food and water insecurities. To build capacity of local institutions to carry out the HVI assessments and analysis, and To provide recommendations on the financial and fiscal policy measures and instruments that can be used to improve the resilience of households to disasters, food and water insecurities Jimat managed to undertake the following activities; Prepared training manual and related materials Facilitated and trained researchers at the Universities of Venda and Fort Hare on Cost Benefit analysis Provided workshop Reports Worked with and advised researchers on Cost Benefit Analysis Analysed the cost benefit portion of the project Produced a cost benefit analysis component of the report
