    To reduce risks and vulnerability of households and communities, FAO is implementing the emergency livelihood and nutrition support to the vulnerable population in the crisis affected communities in the North West and South West regions of Cameroon. This project aims at improving the food security of beneficiaries through the production of eggs/nutrition-sensitive poultry farming, organic oyster mushrooms and vegetable gardens for domestic consumption as well as the sale on the market.

    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).

    Cameroon, as most countries in the Sahel, is currently facing shocks that are affecting people’s food security and livelihoods. The upsurge in attacks by non‑state armed groups in the Far North region on the border with Nigeria, the sociopolitical crisis in the North-West and South-West regions and the influx of Central African refugees in the East and Adamawa regions are the main factors exacerbating people’s vulnerabilities. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) together with the Kingdom of Belgium contribute to the Government of Cameroon’s Emergency Plan to Combat Food Crisis in the country through agriculture and livestock support in the eastern region.
