    Contribution from the Government of Sweden to FAO

    In 2021, the Government of Sweden, through the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida), contributed SEK 94 million (USD 11.08 million) to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) emergency and resilience programme. This funding supported the implementation of ten emergency and resilience projects implemented from 1 January 2021 to 30 April 2022: eight in Africa (Burkina Faso, the Central African Republic, Kenya, the Niger, Nigeria, Somalia and South Sudan); one in Asia (Afghanistan); and one project to support the global Food Security Cluster. Sida funding enabled FAO to respond to the livelihood needs of over 96 000 vulnerable households, of whom over 32 800 were headed by women, who were affected by climate-related disasters (drought, flood), political instability, conflict and the COVID-19 pandemic. It also enabled FAO to enhance partnerships to effectively respond to the impacts of increasing global food insecurity as a result of the war in Ukraine. Beneficiary households, including internally displaced people (IDP), refugees and host families, were able to kick-start their food production and put to use their knowledge and skills to rebuild – and sustain – their livelihoods. The funding has also helped to improve the quality of FAO’s work before, during and after emergencies and strengthen the coordination of food security and agriculture sectors at national and global levels. As a result, a wide range of stakeholders (including United Nations agencies, national ministries and non-governmental organizations) are better positioned to increase the effectiveness and efficiency of future responses.

    FAO in the 2017 humanitarian appeals 2016
    Also available in:

    In 2016, FAO reached 21 million crisis-affected people, helping them to produce and purchase food, maintain their livelihoods, stay on or return to their land where it was safe to do so and enabling them to provide for themselves. However, forecasts for 2017 are alarming. Millions of people – many of them children – face the very real threat of starvation in Madagascar, northeastern Nigeria, South Sudan and Yemen. Drought is once again threatening herders across the Horn of Africa, further under mining livelihoods that have yet to recover from the last drought. In Iraq and Syria, violence continues unabated, forcing people to abandon their homes and agriculture-based livelihoods. This destroys any development gains made and pushes people into food insecurity in the short term, making it harder to return and resume their livelihoods when stability is restored. In 2017, FAO is seeking over USD 1 billion to reach more than 40 million people.

    The Niger and Burkina Faso: Sida’s contribution to the Special Fund for Emergency and Rehabilitation Activities (SFERA) – Anticipatory Action window 2022
    Also available in:

    The Sahel region is experiencing a food crisis, with 38.3 million people projected to be in acute food insecurity during this year’s lean season (June–August 2022) – a fourfold increase compared with 2019 – and millions more at risk of slipping into a crisis situation or worse. The effects of climate change in the region are worsening irregular rainfall and climatic shocks such as floods. Both Burkina Faso and the Niger are especially vulnerable to flood risk. Thanks to the contribution of the Swedish International Development Agency (Sida) to the Special Fund for Emergency and Rehabilitation Activities (SFERA) – Anticipatory Action window, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) is acting early in flood-prone areas in the Sahel through cash assistance, capacity building and veterinary support to protect the assets and livelihoods of vulnerable pastoralists.
