Country South Sudan
Modeling and Simulation PROJECTS
Using South Sudan as a case study, Kimetrica is developing parameterized quantitative models to generate key output variables for population, conflict, household economics, water, markets, health, and humanitarian operational response that impact food security. These models will serve as inputs into a continuous process of developing scenario-based decision-support tools which will, over the course of this research, evolve into a Web-based interactive tool. It will allow decision makers to construct plausible scenarios - spatially and temporally defined by the user - and explore a range of response options to mitigate food insecurity.
