FAO: Improved production, availability and access to nutritious food for vulnerable people in north-eastern Nigeria


Improve the production, availability and access to nutritious food for vulnerable IDPs, returnees and host communities in north-eastern Nigeria by the provision of agricultural production inputs such as seeds, tools and fertilizer. The provision of agricultural production will complement the emergency food assistance provided by the WFP and enable farmers to produce enough food, as well as to meet the most vulnerable households’ immediate food needs.

Contexto On 24 February 2017, SDC/HA pledged an additional allocation of CHF 15 million to support emergency relief operations to help populations facing starvation in parts of Africa and Yemen. Out of the CHF 15.0 million, CHF 2 million will be allocated to support FAO’s emergency operations in north-eastern Nigeria. FAO Nigeria will provide emergency agriculture-based livelihoods assistance in close cooperation with WFP in an integrated two-track emergency response approach; combining emergency food assistance provided by WFP through in-kind food or cash-based transfers (CBT), and FAO fast-tracking of small holder agriculture production support through the provision of seeds, tools and fertilizers as well as small scale livelihoods starter kits. The provision of agricultural production inputs such as seeds, tools and fertilizer is therefore crucial to enable farmers to produce enough food during the next cropping season starting in June 2017 as well as to meet the most vulnerable households' immediate food needs.
