    The National Food Security Assessment (NaFSA) tool is part of the toolbox of the Food Security Standard (FSS). The FSS integrates the Right to Food into sustainability certification schemes by translating it into a set of criteria that can be verified during a sustainability audit in the agricultural sector. Prior to the audit, the auditor has to familiarize him-/herself with the food security situation and the related overall framework conditions in the audit country and become more familiar with the manifold aspects of food security and the Right to Food. The Excel-based NaFSA tool facilitates a quick and easy, yet comprehensive preparation of the auditor using publicly available information from websites of UN-agencies and other relevant institutions. The NaFSA tool consists of 8 categories relevant for food security and the Right to adequate Food with a total of 27 indicators. For more information please see the link to the websites of the Food Security Standard below.

    Market Economy Status index is calculated taking account indicators like Level of Socioeconomic Development, Organization of the Market and Competition, Currency and Price Stability, Private Property, welfare regime, economic performance and sustainability. Market Economy Status index is one of indicators contributing for Bertelsmann Stiftung’s Transformation Index (BTI). The short description of Bertelsmann Stiftung’s Transformation Index (BTI)is given below :- Advocating reforms aimed at supporting the development of a constitutional democracy and a socially responsible market economy, the BTI provides the framework for an exchange of good practices among agents of reform. The BTI publishes two rankings, the Status Index and the Management Index, both of which are based on in-depth assessments of 129 countries. The Status Index ranks the countries according to the state of their democracy and market economy, while the Management Index ranks them according to their respective leadership’s management performance. Distributed among the dimensions of democracy, market economy and management, a total of 17 criteria are subdivided into 49 questions. BTI countries are selected according to the following criteria: They have yet to achieve a fully consolidated democracy and market economy, have populations of more than two million (excepting seven states chosen as particularly interesting cases), and are recognized as sovereign states.
