    On 6 February 2023, two powerful earthquakes struck the southeastern region of Türkiye. The earthquake-affected area, known as Türkiye’s “fertile crescent”, accounted for approximately 15.3 percent of the country’s agricultural gross domestic product and employed 14 percent of its farmers. The significant damages and losses to crops, livestock, fisheries and agricultural infrastructure were estimated at USD 6.3 billion. In response, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) scaled up its emergency response and launched its three-year Earthquake Response and Recovery Plan (ERRP) with the overall objective of maintaining food production and availability through the restoration of critical agrifood systems and rural livelihoods. This document provides an overview of FAO's response under the ERRP during February–December 2023 as well as planned response until June 2024. It also highlights FAO’s funding requirements to fully implement the ERRP.

    On 6 February 2023, two devastating earthquakes followed by tremors and aftershocks ripped through the southeastern region of Türkiye. The agriculture sector incurred direct damages amounting to USD 1.3 billion, alongside estimated losses of USD 5.1 billion in agricultural production. Smallholder farming households and small-scale agricultural producers were among the hardest hit by the disaster. Therefore, it was imperative for the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) to complement national response and recovery efforts. In support of national priorities and FAO’s efforts, the Government of Germany, through the Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture, contributed USD 1 060 090 for the implementation of project OSRO/ TUR/011/GER, entitled “Rural revive: Rebuilding rural communities through cooperative movement”. This document provides a summary of the context, objective and expected outputs of the project.

    Türkiye: Earthquake response and recovery plan, 2023–2026 2023
    Also available in:

    The earthquakes that struck Türkiye on February 2023 had a devastating impact on the agriculture and rural sectors. For example, agricultural infrastructure, including warehouses, packaging and storage facilities, as well as equipment, have been severely damaged; more than 13 284 livestock shelters were destroyed and around 815 000 heads of livestock were lost; fisheries were impacted; and markets and supply chains were disrupted. In response, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) in partnership with the Government of Türkiye developed a three-year Earthquake response and recovery plan (ERRP), with an estimated budget of USD 112 million, directly benefiting approximately 700 000 people and over 850 enterprises in the affected areas. The ERRP aims to restore the supply and value chains of agrifood systems (Outcome 1); revitalize the agricultural labour market (Outcome 2); and empower rural communities for sustainable development (Outcome 3). In that regard, the ERRP is a comprehensive plan that includes immediate, short term and long term interventions. This document serves as roadmap for the ERRP and as a resource mobilization tool, presenting the rationale, the expected impact, outcomes and outputs of the ERRP as well as the funding requirements.
