    FAO in the Humanitarian Appeals
    2015 mid-year update

    In 2015, the world continues to face an unprecedented number of humanitarian crises. Over USD 750 million are required to address the immediate challenges facing agriculture and food security in the countries and regions highlighted in this mid-year review of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations’ (FAO) participation in the 2015 humanitarian appeals. Even though agriculture is a source of livelihood for 75 percent of the population in most of the affected countries and the FAO appeal only represents a tiny fraction of the overall humanitarian needs, resource partners’ contributions received to date barely cover 20 percent of FAO’s appeal. And the needs are bigger than ever.

    Underfunded appeals
    Mid-year update: July 2018

    Humanitarian needs have continued to rise in 2018, driven by conflict, instability and climate shocks. Safeguarding agriculture-based livelihoods from the outset of a crisis is crucial to rapidly increase food availability and access among vulnerable populations. FAO’s component of the global humanitarian appeals represents just 4 percent of the overall requirement of USD 25.39 billion. Despite up to 80 percent of those affected by ongoing crises relying on crops, livestock, fisheries and forest production for their survival, funding for FAO’s appeals has been disappointingly low, particularly in some countries facing protracted and deteriorating crises. The purpose of this publication therefore is to flag to our resource partners some critically underfunded crises, highlighting priority actions that need to be taken before the end of the year, as well as the funds needed to undertake these, in order to prevent a further deterioration in food security.

    Project brief: Greening the humanitarian response in displacement settings
    Ecosystem restoration and sustainable forest management for enhanced energy access and livelihood resilience

    The scale and protracted nature of displacement today highlights more than ever the need to integrate environmental preparedness and response in humanitarian interventions. Addressing the environmental impacts of forced displacement and related risks is essential with environmental protection being a necessary pre-condition of human protection. Over past years, FAO has worked with partners to alleviate environmental pressures and facilitate energy access for both host and displaced communities. Funded by DG ECHO, this initiative adopts a multidisciplinary approach that combines emergency assistance with longterm resilience and development efforts towards the sustainable management of forests and ecosystem restoration, enhancing livelihood resilience, energy access, nutrition and food security in displacement settings. Conceived as a pilot with global level action and country activities in Djibouti, Somalia, Uganda and the United Republic of Tanzania, greening the humanitarian response in displacement settings represents a further opportunity for bridging and maximizing positive effects along the humanitarian–development–peace nexus.
