    This is a summary of the the Country Programming Framework (CPF), which sets out five FAO’s medium term assistance priorities and results, derived from nationally defined priorities and objectives, to be achieved over the five year period of the country’s programming cycle (2013-2017). It also represents FAOs contribution to preparation of UNDAF III. The CPF has been prepared in close collaboration with key Ministries, Departments and Agencies(MDAs); (the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Rura l Development (FMARD), Federal Ministry of Water Resources, Federal Ministry of Environment (FMEnv) and National Planning Commission (NPC)) , representatives of the States Ministries of Agriculture and Natural Resources (SMANR); Non-government Organizations (NGOs), Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) and; Development Partners active in agriculture and natural resources.

    Resilient Livelihoods for Agriculture and Food and Nutrition Security in Areas Affected by the Syria Crisis 2014
    Also available in:

    The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) is closely monitoring the impact of the Syria crisis on food security, nutrition, agriculture and livelihoods in Syria and neighbouring Lebanon, Jordan, Turkey, Iraq and Egypt. Assessments carried out across the affected subregion indicate that threats to food security and livelihoods are severe and growing steadily. In addition to rendering over half of Syrians poor and nearly a third food insecure, the crisis is eroding the ver y foundations of food and livelihood security in what was once a middle-income country, with a relatively high employment rate (92 percent) and growing agriculture sector. Syria’s food chain is disintegrating – from production to markets – and entire livelihood systems are collapsing. The conflict also is severely affecting economic, social and human development in neighbouring countries. With most of Syria’s 2.6 million refugees living outside of camps, host communities face intense competition for resources such as land, water and income opportunities, while costs for housing, food and other commodities soar. The humanitarian appeals for Syria and neighbouring countries are the largest in history: USD 4.4 billion in 2013 and USD 6.5 billion in 2014. As the crisis shows no sign of abating, a resilience-based approach is proving ever more crucial to meet immediate needs while helping affected populations – and the systems which support them – better absorb, adapt and recover from curr ent and future shocks emanating from the crisis. Such an approach, combining emergency and development efforts, is indispensable in the context of food and livelihood security. Behind each family pushed into poverty and hunger, systems are collapsing which need to be protected, restored and strengthened. A holistic approach is needed not only to deliver crisisaffected populations from aid dependency, but also to prevent hunger and poverty from increasing and becoming endemic. FAO’s “Resilient Livelihoods for Agriculture and Food and Nutrition Security in Areas Affected by the Syria Crisis” is a five-year Subregional Strategy and Action Plan, budgeted at USD 280 million – just over a tenth of the value of agricultural losses suffered in Syria by 2012. The Strategy is a dynamic document developed over the course of agricultural programming missions to the subregion in late 2013 and early 2014, which build on rapid agricultural livelihood and food security impact assessments and initia l response plans prepared during the first quarter of 2013. With the aim to protect, restore and strengthen livelihoods and the agro-ecosystems on which livelihoods depend, the Strategy tailors short-, medium- and longer-term actions to address specific needs of the main groups affected by the crisis, including Syrian internally displaced persons (IDPs) and affected populations, refugees, returnees, host communities and national and local authorities. Activities focus on seven priority areas, which can be broadly categorized as: (i) control of transboundary animal diseases (TADs); (ii) control of plant pests and diseases; (iii) food security and natural resource information systems, disaster risk management and policy development; (iv) rural and peri-urban income generation and employment; (v) agricultural production; (vi) natural resource management; and (vii) food safety and nutrition. The Strategy aligns with national government priorities and existing regional frameworks for add ressing the Syria crisis and calls for close partnership with affected communities, national institutions, United Nations (UN) agencies, non-state actors and private-sector organizations. Agriculture cannot be an afterthought. Affected populations in the subregion need effective responses to the challenges threatening their food security and livelihoods. A resilience-based approach delivers this, while better preserving the integrity of lives, livelihoods, natural resources and critical develop ment gains achieved over the past decades.

    This Country Programming Framework (CPF) sets out five government priority areas to guide the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations' (FAO) partnership and support to the Government of Nigeria (GoN) – bringing together innovative international best practices and global standards with national and regional expertise during a five-year period from 2018 to 2022. The priority areas are: 1. Strengthen national food security and nutrition through enhanced nutrition-sensitive and climate smart food systems. 2. Support for appropriate and operationally effective agricultural policy and regulatory frameworks. 3. Support to Nigeria's economic diversification agenda and the promotion of decent employment for youth and women in the agriculture value chains 4. Improve efficient and sustainable management of natural resources and ecosystems. 5. Enhance disaster risk reduction, resilience building and emergency management towards strengthening the Humanitarian Development Nexus. The CPF is anchored in several national documents, which are directed at addressing a myriad of challenges to the rapid development of the agricultural sector. The documents include the Agricultural Promotion Policy (APP) - the Green Alternative, which aims to set the agricultural sector on a growth path that will ensure that output is sufficient to meet domestic food requirements and export quality levels. The Federal Government's Agriculture Promotion Policy, The Green Alternative, builds on the gains made by the Agricultural Transformation Agenda. It aims to work with key stakeholders to build an agribusiness economy that can deliver sustained prosperity, inclusive and equitable growth by meeting domestic food security goals, generating exports and supporting sustainable income and job growth
