    Madagascar: Germany’s contribution through the Special Fund for Emergency and Rehabilitation Activities (SFERA) – Anticipatory Action window 2022

    Madagascar has been reeling from a socioeconomic crisis marked by high levels of poverty and food insecurity, with the situation worsening as a result of the ongoing effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and of the war in Ukraine. Southern Madagascar is particularly vulnerable to climatic hazards that impact agricultural activities, the main source of livelihoods for the majority of the population. Over the past few years, the South of the Island, the Grand Sud, has been plagued by a striking and prolonged drought, severely hindering local capacities to produce food. To support the most vulnerable communities in their efforts to face the predicated hazard, and to mitigate the impact ahead of the peak of the lean season, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) is acting fast. Thanks to the German Federal Foreign Office’s contribution to the SFERA – Anticipatory Action window, FAO disbursed necessary funds to support vulnerable households against the expected shock. Acting early, through cash transfers along with seeds and livestock support, helps farmers face the predicted drought and safeguard their food security.

    West Africa and the Sahel: Germany’s contribution through the Special Fund for Emergency and Rehabilitation Activities (SFERA) – Anticipatory Action window 2023

    In 2022, the West Africa and Sahel region experienced one of the worst years in recent history in terms of humanitarian impacts from floods. The growing frequency, intensity and gravity of climate and weather-related disasters, including floods, are jeopardizing the region’s entire food system and particularly the agriculture sector. Combined with other shocks and risks affecting the region, a new risk of flooding for 2023 may further impact people and their livelihoods. Thanks to the German Federal Foreign Office’s contribution to the Special Fund for Emergency and Rehabilitation Activities – Anticipatory Action window, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations is scaling up early warning messaging and risk awareness, and safeguarding crops and livestock, to mitigate the impact of flooding on vulnerable communities’ livelihoods and food security.

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

    In Mongolia, the frequency, intensity and unpredictability of weather extremes such as the harsh winter (dzud), drought, snow and dust storms, heavy rainfall and flooding have tripled in the last decade, heavily impacting traditional livestock-based livelihoods. In 2022, according to the National Agrometeorological Services, 50 percent of the country’s territory experienced a moisture deficit in the summer season. Coupled with early snowfall and below-average temperature forecasts, this resulted in 59 percent of the country being at high risk of dzud. Following these early warning signs, and thanks to the Government of Belgium’s contribution to the SFERA – Anticipatory Action window, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) together with the Government of Mongolia put in place Anticipatory Action measures to mitigate a potential massive livestock mortality in 11 provinces at high risk of dzud. FAO will provide cash transfers to help households procure fodder at reduced government rates and ensure their livelihood is protected during dzud. The reduced rates will come in the form of a 50 percent discount on hay and fodder from the state emergency reserve to vulnerable herder households in 158 soums/administrative divisions.
