    Due to the growing world population, it is estimated that global food production will need to increase by 60 percent to feed over 9.5 billion people by 2050. Worldwide, the livelihood of 2.5 billion people depend on agriculture. These small-scale farmers, herders, fishers and forest-dependent communities generate more than half of the global agricultural production and are particularly at risk from disasters that destroy or damage harvests, equipment, supplies, livestock, seeds, crops and stored food. Disasters and crises don’t just have immediate, short-term effects – they undermine livelihoods and national development gains that have taken years to build. As the agnitude and impact of crises and disasters increases – aggravated by the overexploitation of natural resources – more and more households, communities and governments of developing countries are less able to absorb, recover and adapt, making them more vulnerable to future shocks.

    The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) has developed this three-year strategy to strengthen resilience of agriculture-based livelihoods in Nigeria under recurring threats from both conflict and natural hazard-induced disasters to better withstand shocks and thrive. It integrates the pathways for resilience through four main outcome areas. The first one is the strengthening of the national institutions and their entities for disaster risk reduction, natural resources management and food crisis prevention and management in the agriculture sector. Secondly, it aims to inform agriculture-based livelihood interventions with reliable data, analysis and a well-established early warning system against known and emerging risks and hazards, for enhanced food security. Besides, the strategy aims to promote diversified, resilient and inclusive agriculture-based livelihood systems and also to improve and protect food security and nutrition, and agriculture-based livelihoods of crisis-affected populations.

    Renforcer la résilience face aux menaces et aux crises 2016
    Also available in:

    La moitié de la production alimentaire globale est produite par environ 2,5 milliards de petits exploitants qui tirent leurs moyens d’existence presque exclusivement de l’agriculture. Ils figurent parmi les populations les plus vulnérables aux catastrophes et aux crises susceptibles d’emporter leurs cultures, réserves, équipements et animaux en quelques minutes. Renforcer la résilience de leurs moyens d’existence permettra de réduire la souffrance humaine et les coûts financiers liés aux catastr ophes. En outre, il s’agit d’une étape clé pour réaliser les ODD et parvenir à l’augmentation estimée de 60 pour cent de la production dont le monde a besoin pour nourrir les 9 milliards de personnes à l’horizon 2050.
