The Food Security Genome: Forecasting Outcomes

Commitment by

Mission Measurement

In 2015, Mission Measurement committed to increase the efficacy and impact of food security programs by creating an innovative data tool to forecast program outcomes. The Food Security Genome will be built using a vast evidence base including program datasets from corporate, NGO, academic and government resources. The resulting model will be able to predict a program?s likelihood of success, the number of individuals likely to achieve the desired outcome, and the cost of achieving that outcome, for any food security program. This tool will allow users to proactively design more effective, cost-efficient, and impactful programs.
