    Quand l’urgence dure plusieurs décennies
    Comment améliorer la sécurité alimentaire dans les situations de crises prolongées
    2010
    Also available in:

    33 pays sont actuellement confrontés à une crise de sécurité alimentaire. 14 d'entre eux subisse cette situation depuis plus d'une décennie. Quand l’urgence perdure aussi longtemps, les paradigmes traditionnels du développement et de l’aide humanitaire sont impuissants à trouver des réponses efficaces. Au lieu de privilégier les programmes de secours ad hoc, les interventions devraient adopter des stratégies à long terme et s’appuyer sur les institutions locales.

    In many countries, prolonged confl icts result in food emergencies that recur over years or even decades. Initial humanitarian relief efforts are rarely replaced by programmes that offer a longer-term perspective on food security. This book provides examples of opportunities to bridge the gap between emergency relief and longer term developmental approaches, which can help us rethink how to support food security in protracted crises. Somalia, Sudan and the Democratic Republic of Congo have all been affected by severe protracted crises. For the first time, evidence and in-depth analysis from these countries sheds light on how to support the livelihoods of local populations. Using concrete examples, Beyond Relief demonstrates how food security means different things in different contexts while also advocating a crosscutting learning process for longer-term approaches to protracted crisis. This collection is essential reading for donors, policymakers, NGO workers and researchers working on food security.
