    As a result of heavy rains (July–September 2022) and river floods (October–December 2022) in Cameroon, fields were destroyed, animals were lost and agricultural livelihoods were disrupted. Basic social infrastructure (markets, housing, health centres, schools, water points, etc.) has been affected and many households are unable to meet their most immediate needs, leading to population displacements. Thanks to support from the Government of the Kingdom of Belgium, through SFERA, FAO is providing emergency food production assistance through cash+ to flood-affected households in the Far North region. The intervention aims to enable targeted households to cover their basic needs through unconditional cash transfers along with the provision of emergency agricultural/pastoral/fish farming production kits. In addition, beneficiaries will participate in training sessions on good agricultural, livestock or fish farming practices, among other topics. Overall, the assistance provided will enable vulnerable households to recover their livelihoods and restore food production, resulting in the increased availability of and access to food, benefiting the wider community.
