    On 6 February 2023, two devastating earthquakes struck southern Türkiye also affecting the northwestern governorates of the Syrian Arab Republic, causing extensive damage to agricultural livelihoods and production. This Data in Emergencies Impact (DIEM-Impact) report presents the results of the assessment carried out in March 2023 conducted by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). Data collection lasted for seven days and took place from 9 to 15 March. A total of 190 interviews were conducted in 135 communities. FAO created the DIEM-Impact system to provide a rapid, granular analysis of the consequences of large-scale hazards on agricultural value chains and livelihoods. This analysis is based on a variety of assessment methodologies, including primary and secondary information collection, remote sensing technologies, and FAO's damage and loss methodology. DIEM-Impact can be activated in the context of sudden-onset and slow-onset hazards, natural or human-induced, including floods, cyclones and tropical storms, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, drought, invasive pests such as fall armyworm, pandemics and economic crises.

    Emergency Management Centre for Animal Health Annual Report
    November 2017 - October 2018

    Animal health emergencies continue to erupt around the world at an ever-increasing pace. Increased global travel, human migration and informal trade of animals and animal products continue to intensify the risk of disease spread. Infectious diseases and other animal health threats have the potential to move rapidly within a country or around the world leading to severe socio-economic and public health consequences. For zoonoses that develop the ability for human to human transmission, an early response to an animal health emergency could prevent the next pandemic. As the demands continue to evolve for effective and efficient management of animal diseases, including emerging diseases and zoonoses, the Emergency Management Centre for Animal Health (EMC-AH) continues to evolve and keep pace with the global demands, adding value to Member States of FAO. Building on the first eleven years of success, the Centre rebranded its platform in 2018 as EMC-AH, with the full support of the Crisis Management Centre for Animal Health Steering Committee in November 2017. The new name reflects the modernization of the platform and new way of working to better address the needs of the future. Further, the inaugural EMC-AH strategic action plan 2018 2022 released in June 2018 clearly states the vision, mission, and core functions of EMC AH for the coming five years with the aim of reducing the impact of animal health emergencies. EMC AH’s annual report reflects EMC AH’s new way of working under its strategic action plan and addresses EMC AH performance and actions for the twelve-month period of November 2017-October 2018. During the reporting period, EMC AH contributed to strengthening resilience of livelihoods to animal health-related emergencies and zoonoses through the core pillars of its strategic action plan: preparedness, response, incident coordination, collaboration and resource mobilization. The annual report illustrates EMC-AH’s commitment to transparency and accountability. FAO’s Member States have an ongoing need for a holistic and sustainable international platform that provides the necessary tools and interventions inclusive of animal health emergency management. EMC-AH strategic action plan requires a substantial commitment of resources to implement the full range of proposed activities, and EMC-AH must maintain key personnel essential to carry out its objectives and components of the 2016-2019 FAO Strategic Framework that addresses increased resilience of livelihoods to threats and crises (Strategic Programme five [SP5]). As a joint platform of FAO’s Animal Health Service and Emergency Response and Resilience Team, and in close collaboration with related partners and networks, EMC-AH is appropriately positioned to provide renewed leadership, coordination and action for global animal health emergencies.

    The right to adequate food in emergency programmes 2014
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    The right to adequate food in emergency programmes demonstrates the relevance of the right to adequate food and related human rights standards to the work on emergencies and provides guidance on how to integrate the standards into emergency programmes and projects. It answers the questions: what does the right to adequate food mean in the context of emergencies? Why is it important for emergency programmes to adopt the human rights-based approach? who are the rights-holders and the duty-bearers in situations of emergency? How may the right to adequate food and related human rights principles be integrated and applied in emergency programmes and projects? The paper attempts to respond to these crucial questions by referring to normative instruments, strategic frameworks, operational tools and practices of FAO and its partners in the work on emergencies. With an argument for the importance of the human rights-based approach to breaking the cycle of crises and humanitarian interventions, the paper could be quite relevant to resilience-building programmes that aim to improve the capacities of individuals, households, communities and states to deal with natural and human-induced disasters. Produced in the framework of the joint organizational output within FAO on integrating gender, nutrition and the right to food in work on emergencies, the paper can be of use to the broader humanitarian and development community.
