Cost Tool

The strategy for assessing cost-effectiveness of new modalities of response to emergencies, cost-effectiveness tools team aims to:

  • developing a strategy for assessing cost-effectiveness of new modalities of response to emergencies: modeling of the entire value-chain as a “system” (including product mix, transfer modality, regional and local procurement, storage location and amounts, transport and delivery options), a total-cost effectiveness analysis will be conducted. The goal will be to move beyond sequential and siloed decision making without proper visibility of each decision’s impact on others to consider the entire value-chain as an interacting system. This work stream also involves
  • developing of cost-effectiveness tools designed to estimate costs of producing and transporting Corn Soy Blend (CSB) and Ready to Use Supplementary Food (RUSF) products used in USAID/FFP Title II programs and WFP emergency operations.
