The Bosasso Urban Household Economy Study provides an example of the application of Household Economic Analysis (HEA) to an urban area in Somalia. The HEA included a wealth ranking process that identifies significant differences in wealth among the studied population as well as an analysis of food consumption patterns. From the data that are captured, implications are drawn for broad interventions to address the identified food insecurity issues.
