Post a reply: SQUEAC and Nomads

Dear all, We have recently completed a second SQUEAC survey in a region in Chad. We found a coverage 5 points lower than the previous coverage. We hypothesized that one of the reasons of this decrease in covergae is the high presence of nomads during the survey period (rainy season/hunger gap) compared to the previous period that SQUEAC was undertaken (post harvest/post hunger gap). Indeed, nomads account for more than 40% of the population in that region and the survey failed to collect data on the lifestyle of interviewed mothers. We strongly recommend for next SQUEAC to collect data on lifestyle of interviewed mothers in order to make detailled and accurate analyses. This raises up a question on whether or not SQUEAC is suitable for nomad communities or populations with high proportion of nomads. Thanks for your contribution
