    Genetic Resources for Food Security and Nutrition 2015
    Conserving genetic resources for food and agriculture and promoting their use in support of global food security and sustainable development for present and future generations. Genetic resources for food and agriculture (GRFA) –the diversity of plants, animals, aquatic resources, forests, micro-organisms and invertebrates – are the strategic reservoir on which all our food production systems depend.

    Special Report - FAO/WFP Crop and Food Security Assessment Mission to South Sudan 2015
    Also available in:

    An FAO/WFP Crop and Food Security Assessment Mission (CFSAM) visited South Sudan from 2 to 14 February 2015 to estimate cereal production during 2014 and assess the overall food security situation. Although there have been notable improvements relative to the first half of 2014, the food security perspectives during 2015 remain a cause for concern. Even though households in non-conflict areas have larger stocks as a result of the 2014 good harvest, states neighbouring the conflict areas still re gister high rates of food insecurity. In 2015, WFP plans to assist 3 million people in South Sudan providing just under 261 000 tonnes of food, depending on levels of funding; though a large component (1.4 million) concerns people directly affected by conflict, WFP assistance will also focus on school feeding, nutrition interventions and food for assets programmes.
