Price of inputs is an overarching indicator that provides key information for the implementation of
the Food Security and Livelihood (FSL) activities. As an outcome of input supply and demand forces,
input price monitoring give timely insight into many different drivers that influence the functioning and
viability of a market, and this is relevant for food assistance and agro-based livelihood programming.
The scope of this initiative is based on qualitative and quantitative data collection that is used to
monitor the price, availability, and affordability of agriculture inputs (crops and livestock) across the
targeted geographical locations on a seasonal basis. Monitoring prices and trends of the cost value
of selected crops and livestock inputs, provide evidence to inform the FSL Cluster, humanitarian
partners/agency members in deciding on Cash Transfer Values for respective agricultural inputs/
kits distributions over time and space to support crop and livestock holders aimed at improved
agriculture production, the same way the standard food basket and survival minimum expenditure
basket (SMEB) values inform cash transfer values for Food assistance programming.
This initiative aims to monitor the agricultural input markets in Northwest Syria (NWS) on a seasonal
basis, to assess the availability, country of origin, and prices of agricultural inputs. This report covers
the winter agriculture production season of NWS in 2022.
