The Annual assessment’s objectives were to understand the status of livelihood sources in the rural and urban areas, thus to determine levels of food insecurity amongst populations, estimating vulnerable populations facing food insecurity and establish forms of coping mechanisms adopted during periods of food insecurity. The outputs from the assessment were further used to inform the Integrated Food Security Phase Classification (IPC), as direct and indirect evidence.The IPC Analytical Framework was used to further classify rural populations into Phases.

The 2016 Swaziland vulnerability assessment and analysis exercise was carried out using both qualitative and quantitative approaches for both urban and rural areas. In total, Swaziland has 10 zones (Rural livelihoods and urban zones).
