Building food system resilience in protracted crises is an important goal of the Food and Nutrition Security Resilience Programme (FNS-REPRO). FNS-REPRO adopts a food system – target system interface systems approach to analyse, understand and build absorptive, adaptive and transformative food system resilience capacities in the face of shocks and stressors, in order to improve food and nutrition outcomes. Each REPRO country has a specific thematic focus for which a facilitation tool will be developed and published. This working document is such part of the series of FoSRA publications under FNSREPRO, with s special focus on the food-Gum Arabic system interface and its assessment. This working document is a collaborative effort between the Wageningen Centre for Development Innovation (WCDI) of Wageningen University and Research (WUR) and FAO Sudan under the Food and Nutrition Security Resilience Programme (FNS-REPRO). The proposed methodology and tools will be field tested in Sudan and validated by the parties mentioned above, based on which a final document will be produced. This document presents the working document of the food-Gum Arabic system resilience assessment and facilitation tool (FoSRA-GA-FT). The FoSRA methodology will be employed by Wageningen Centre for Development Innovation (WCDI), in close consultation with FAO, to develop food system resilience pathways in Sudan as part of the REPRO Programme. There are three interrelated parts of the food system resilience assessment: the FoSRA conceptual framework; the FoSRA field assessment (including an extensive training and tool kit); and learning and knowledge management. The FoSRAGA- FT will contribute to developing good practice and policy recommendations in building food system resilience in protracted crisis situations from the perspective of the underpinning Gum Arabic system.
