    This briefing paper accompanies a report that examines the parallel but separate trajectories of peace-building, recovery and transformation over the past 15 years in northern (Acholi and Lango subregions) and northeastern (Karamoja) Uganda. Parallels between these areas include a history of marginalization from the central state, underdevelopment and endemic poverty, and vulnerability to climate change and cross-border incursions. This is the second in a series of three briefing papers that form part of the Mind the gap – Bridging the research, practice and policy divide to enhance livelihood resilience in conflict settings project, a collaboration between FAO and the Feinstein International Center, Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy at Tufts University.

    The Philippines is one of the most vulnerable countries to natural disasters An average of 20 typhoons affect the country ever year, some of which result in significant damage On 22 December 2017 Severe Tropical Storm ( Tembin made landfall in the Cateel municipality of the Davao Oriental province, and it proceeded to cross other provinces in Northern Mindanao and Palawan The storm intensified into a typhoon the following day Overall, it caused flooding in over 230 areas in various regions, as well as flash floods and landslides, and it displaced more than 300 000 individuals. Most of the areas affected by STS Tembin were highly dependent on agriculture (various crops, poultry, livestock and fisheries) The storm destroyed crops and killed livestock, causing humanitarian and economic crises for 158 923 families The DA reported a loss of USD 4 7 million (Philippine Peso [ 234 907 912 in the agricultural sector Rice and corn were the crops that were hit hardest, with rice accounting for 58 percent of the total loss and corn accounting for 39 percent Two of the areas affected by STS Tembin were Lanao del Norte, located in Region X, also known as Northern Mindanao, and Lanao del Sur, located in the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao ( These regions were home to many smallholder farmers whose livelihoods and food security were at risk These areas also contained evacuation centres and host communities for displaced people who had been forced out of their homes by the Marawi conflict in 2017 The STS Tembin further aggravated the living conditions and jeopardized the livelihoods of these people The project provided emergency support to promote the restoration of the livelihoods of 1 970 farming households, or 9 850 people in the Lanao del Norte and Lanao del Sur provinces Without this emergency support, farmers in those areas risked missing the cropping season, which is critical for both food security and ensuring seasonal income sources The emergency support consisted of the provision of seeds and fertilizers, as well as capacity building activities for local government officials and representatives The topics of these training sessions focused on resilient rice based farming systems, Disaster Risk Reduction and Management ( Early Warning Early Action ( and cash based transfers for vulnerability reduction and disaster response.

    Emergency Assistance to Improve Food and Nutrition Security of IDPS in South West Region of Cameroon - TCP/CMR/3702 2021

    Beginning in 2016, the Anglophone Crisis has led to the internal displacement of over 160 000 people in Cameroon. In addition, hundreds of thousands of people have sort refuge in neighbouring Nigeria, and many others have fled to nearby forests. Complicating matters further, many farms and houses have been burned down. This has ultimately resulted in negative outcomes for the regional economy. The situation continues to deteriorate in terms of household livelihood options, and the prevailing insecurity makes it difficult for farmers to cultivate crops and take care of livestock. The flow-on effects include a substantial reduction in food security. The emergence of this crisis led United Nations (UN) agencies to undertake a rapid assessment of the situation in March 2018. Following the assessment, a flash appeal for Cameroon was prepared through the UN system. The project was therefore prepared within the framework of the flash appeal for Cameroon. The aim of the project was to improve the food and nutrition security of internally displaced people in Cameroon. Initially, the project sought to reach 500 families, or approximately 3 500 direct beneficiaries. Four outputs were envisioned for the project. These included: supporting broiler production (Output 1); supporting egg production (Output 2); supporting production through market gardening and nutrition education (Output 3); and strengthening the capacity of national institutions in data collection and processing, and developing early warning systems for conflict-affected areas (Output 4).
