    The Emergency Relief Coordinator and the Inter-Agency Standing Committee (IASC) introduced the cluster system in 2005 as part of a wider reform of the humanitarian system. In 2010, the global food security cluster (FSC), co-led by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and WFP, was created to coordinate food security interventions in emergencies. The global FSC has 47 members and a Global Support Team (GST), based in Rome with an average of 12 staff members and a cum ulative budget of USD 7 million for January 2011 to January 2014.1 Global humanitarian funding for food and agriculture over the same period was about USD 12.5 billion.2 The GST facilitates coordination at the global level and supports both formal food security clusters and other food security coordination systems in more than 40 countries. Structures and resources for coordination vary widely, ranging from situations in which there are no dedicated resources for coordination, to those with coor dination and information management teams at the country and hub levels, with direct costs of up to USD 1 million per year. The global FSC supports country-level coordination mechanisms through surge and support missions, tools, guidance, training and information management. Food security coordination mechanisms at the country and local levels can support all stages of a humanitarian response, including preparedness, needs assessment and analysis, strategy formulation, implementation, reporting and learning. This coordination is expected to improve the capacity of humanitarian organizations to respond strategically and coherently, and to reduce gaps and duplications. Ultimately, it is expected to result in improved services to the populations affected by crises and emergencies.

    By agreeing on the Country Programming Framework (CPF) for the period 2012-2015, the Government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan and the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations confirm their alliance in striving for agricultural and rural development, food security and natural resource development through mutual collaboration and a strong partnership. The CPF is the joint response from FAO and the Government to agricultural and food security challenges in the context of the Transition Process that follows the Kabul Conference. It defines priorities for FAO and Government collaboration and results (outcomes and outputs) to be achieved over the period 2012-2015, which are based on the National Priority Programmes (NPPs) and its priorities adopted by the inter-ministerial Agriculture and Rural Development Cluster and endorsed by JCMB. The CPF generates opportunities for partnerships and resource mobilization. It is fully aligned with the United Nations Developm ent Assistance Framework (UNDAF) 2010-2013 and the Integrated Strategic Framework (ISF) for the period July 2011 to December 2012, of which FAO is a signatory and active participant, and contributes to preparation of new UNDAF 2014-2018. Its situation analysis and review of national strategies represent key inputs to the Common Country Assessment (CCA). The CPF outlines a strategic approach to country-level Programming, contributing to the improvement of the living conditions of the Afghans by p romoting a society free from hunger and malnutrition. The Government pursues all this by aiming at higher economic growth, food security, improved natural resource management, poverty eradication and better national security, in an economically, socially and environmentally sustainable manner.
