    West Africa and the Sahel: Germany’s contribution through the Special Fund for Emergency and Rehabilitation Activities (SFERA) – Anticipatory Action window 2023

    In 2022, the West Africa and Sahel region experienced one of the worst years in recent history in terms of humanitarian impacts from floods. The growing frequency, intensity and gravity of climate and weather-related disasters, including floods, are jeopardizing the region’s entire food system and particularly the agriculture sector. Combined with other shocks and risks affecting the region, a new risk of flooding for 2023 may further impact people and their livelihoods. Thanks to the German Federal Foreign Office’s contribution to the Special Fund for Emergency and Rehabilitation Activities – Anticipatory Action window, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations is scaling up early warning messaging and risk awareness, and safeguarding crops and livestock, to mitigate the impact of flooding on vulnerable communities’ livelihoods and food security.

    The Plurinational State of Bolivia: Belgium's contribution through the Special Fund for Emergency and Rehabilitation Activities (SFERA) – Anticipatory Action window 2023

    The population of the Altiplano, mostly indigenous, has the highest poverty rate in the country, and relies on subsistence agriculture as its main livelihood (potato, quinoa, cañahua, barley, oats and alfalfa). This population is highly vulnerable to the effects of climate change and faces recurrent threats such as drought, frost and hailstorms that negatively affect their agricultural livelihoods and food security. More than 2 800 communities and 486 000 families in six departments of the Bolivian Altiplano have been affected by these events. In this context, it is imperative to urgently implement anticipatory actions to mitigate climate-induced risks to the livelihoods and food security of the most vulnerable people. To contribute to the achievement of this objective, the Government of the Kingdom of Belgium contributed USD 344 412 to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), through the SFERA programme. Thanks to this generous contribution, FAO will support 6 500 vulnerable households dependent on family farming in the Bolivian Altiplano, with water harvesting storage and supply systems, feeding and animal health actions, as well as distribution of drought-tolerant seeds and agricultural inputs.

    Madagascar: Belgium's contribution through the Special Fund for Emergency and Rehabilitation Activities (SFERA) – Anticipatory Action window 2023

    In a general economic context marked by high levels of poverty, Madagascar is particularly vulnerable to hazards that impact agricultural activities, which constitute the population’s main livelihoods. Since 2015, the southern part of the island has been plagued by prolonged episodes of drought, which were exacerbated by the occurence of compounding hazards such as sand-laden winds and attacks by crop pests (locusts, fall armyworms and other insects harmful to vegetable crops). Emergency responses have been implemented by actors in the most affected areas. This has partially improved the livelihoods of the households benefiting from these interventions, but the vulnerability of the population persists. The Government of the Kingdom of Belgium has contributed USD 1 million, through SFERA, to FAO’s Anticipatory Action in the south of Madagascar. Thanks to this generous contribution, FAO will provide 4 500 vulnerable households with support for livestock breeding, seed distribution, fishing equipment and cash distribution, as well as training, to help safeguard the food security and livelihoods of the most vulnerable rural households in the country.
