    Emergency Agricultural Assistance to Vulnerable Drought-Affected Smallholder Farmers in Aleppo Governorat - TCP/SYR/3701 2020

    Already weakened by the current crisis, which is in its eighth year, the scale, severity and complexity of humanitarian and recovery needs in the Syrian Arab Republic remains exceedingly high, as a result of the combined impacts of crisis and the recent drought, which severely affected the agricultural sector. Indeed, wheat production in the 2017/2018 winter season, the only major crop growing season per year, was the lowest since 1989, and about 30 percent of the pre-crisis average of 4.1 million tonnes (2002-2011). Given the poor cereal harvest in 2017/2018, seed was very likely to be in extremely short supply for the coming season, starting in October 2018. The drought affected the main wheat production areas of Al-Hasakeh, Ar-Raqqa, Aleppo, Deir ez-Zor and Hama governorates, which account for about96 percent of the total nationalwheat production. Against this background, the project aimed to reduce the vulnerability of drought and crisis-affected households to food and nutrition insecurity, by providing support to life-saving quick-impact agricultural interventions. The project focused on Aleppo Governorate, which is one of the major wheat production areas in the country, and severely affected by the recent drought.
