    In 2016, FAO reached 21 million crisis-affected people, helping them to produce and purchase food, maintain their livelihoods, stay on or return to their land where it was safe to do so and enabling them to provide for themselves. However, forecasts for 2017 are alarming. Millions of people – many of them children – face the very real threat of starvation in Madagascar, northeastern Nigeria, South Sudan and Yemen. Drought is once again threatening herders across the Horn of Africa, further under mining livelihoods that have yet to recover from the last drought. In Iraq and Syria, violence continues unabated, forcing people to abandon their homes and agriculture-based livelihoods. This destroys any development gains made and pushes people into food insecurity in the short term, making it harder to return and resume their livelihoods when stability is restored. In 2017, FAO is seeking over USD 1 billion to reach more than 40 million people.
