    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.

    Madagascar: Belgium's contribution through the Special Fund for Emergency and Rehabilitation Activities (SFERA) – Anticipatory Action window 2023

    In a general economic context marked by high levels of poverty, Madagascar is particularly vulnerable to hazards that impact agricultural activities, which constitute the population’s main livelihoods. Since 2015, the southern part of the island has been plagued by prolonged episodes of drought, which were exacerbated by the occurence of compounding hazards such as sand-laden winds and attacks by crop pests (locusts, fall armyworms and other insects harmful to vegetable crops). Emergency responses have been implemented by actors in the most affected areas. This has partially improved the livelihoods of the households benefiting from these interventions, but the vulnerability of the population persists. The Government of the Kingdom of Belgium has contributed USD 1 million, through SFERA, to FAO’s Anticipatory Action in the south of Madagascar. Thanks to this generous contribution, FAO will provide 4 500 vulnerable households with support for livestock breeding, seed distribution, fishing equipment and cash distribution, as well as training, to help safeguard the food security and livelihoods of the most vulnerable rural households in the country.
