    Resilience Building in Zimbabwe

    FAO Zimbabwe is implementing diverse initiatives across the agriculture sector as a contribution to FAO’s Resilience Strategy Southern Africa. The initiatives include taking a proactive approach to support timely information use in the agricultural and food security sector. This not only enables better hazard detection but also enhances the sector's overall resilience in responding to emerging challenges. The programme includes interventions that establish robust frameworks for anticipatory action coordination as well as early warning surveillance systems. This multi-actor, multi-sectoral approach reduces hazard impact on humanitarian sectors, showcasing the importance of collaborative efforts in resilience-building. In anticipation of the predicted El Niño-induced Drought FAO has played a leading role in advocating for anticipatory action and integrated sectoral interventions of food security, WASH (Water, Sanitation and Health) and nutrition increasing resilience by protecting smallholder farmers' livelihoods, it stands as a testament to international cooperation in addressing climate-related challenges. FAO is also coordinating efforts contributing towards sustainable food systems while emphasizing sustainability and inclusivity as it aligns with Zimbabwe's commitment to building resilient and robust food systems. By enhancing ecosystem resilience, it addresses livelihoods by providing sustainable solutions to agriculture, forestry, and fisheries. Initiatives focus on resilient recovery through livelihood opportunities and the implementation of Climate Smart Agriculture. FAO in Zimbabwe is promoting community participation, gender mainstreaming, and ensuring compliance with international standards. In partnership with other United Nations agencies, FAO in Zimbabwe is contributing towards enhanced resilience for vulnerable households by implementing interventions that address economic and climate-induced shocks and stresses. Improving seed and fertilizer availability to supporting policy reforms in order to address fundamental aspects of food production, ensuring a resilient and sustainable agricultural landscape has been one of the focus areas of the collaboration between FAO and the government of Zimbabwe.In Zimbabwe, partner funding to FAO's resilience building initiatives has been instrumental in strengthening the various resilience dimensions, including preventive, anticipatory, absorptive, adaptive, and transformational capacities. By focusing on different aspects of resilience, FAO seeks to empower local communities, improve food security, and foster sustainable development in the face of complex challenges due to climate change and economic crisis. This document explores FAO's contributions to enhancing resilience capacities in Zimbabwe, shedding light on the organization's multifaceted approach and its impact on vulnerable populations.

    Resilience Building in Madagascar
    FAO Programme Review 2024
    2024

    The FAO Regional Office for Africa (RAF) collaborates with several African countries in Africa, including Madagascar, to enhance resilience building efforts. In Madagascar FAO is employing an integrated approach to restore and enhance the food production as well as diversify the di¬ets of the communities. Support includes production of short-cycle vegetables, early maturing, and climate-re¬silient varieties of pulses and cereals, and small livestock (poultry and small ruminants), while increasing farmers access to agriculture inputs and sensitizing them to biolog¬ical control of plant pest and diseases. Emphasis is made to include climate-smart agriculture and nutrition sensitive agriculture, combined with sustainable water solutions. To protect and enhance livestock-based livelihoods, livestock vaccination and treatment campaigns are be¬ing scaled up. This includes awareness creation on com¬mon animal disease outbreaks and control but above all, during training sessions, the emphasis is on a prophy¬lactic approach. Furthermore, FAO Madagascar supports the Government in the fight against antimicrobial resistance (AMR). Finally, efforts are being made to rebuild herds and diversify livelihoods through restocking measures, along with en¬hanced animal health services and robust surveillance of common livestock diseases. Through solar pump irrigation systems, FAO is working with communities to build water infrastructure to in¬crease access and availability of water resource for agri¬cultural production and livestock. FAO is also providing support to the Government of Madagascar to strengthen Food Security and Nutrition information analysis and co¬ordination for improved preparedness and response. The food security, nutrition and climate information systems are being reinforced with a focus on strengthening part¬nerships with national and the Southern Africa Devel¬opment Community (SADC). , This document reflects an analysis of ongoing FAO Madagascar resilience building interventions and how they contribute towards the five capacities for resilience building, namely: Preventive: reduce existing and future risks; Anticipative: act early; Absorptive: the ability to bounce back, overwhelmingly humanitarian (emergency response); Adaptive: incremental adjustments; Transformative: make fundamental changes to the system. The five capacity areas are in most cases overlapping during specific project implementation, with the classification based on the overarching resilience capacity area.

    The FAO Regional Office for Africa (RAF) collaborates with several African countries in Sub-Saharan Africa, including Liberia, to enhance resilience building efforts. FAO is implementing programs in Liberia to enhance resilience, aligning with government priorities and key policies. The Resilience Building Programme focuses on policy interventions covering food security, nutrition, land, livestock, fisheries, and environment. FAO promotes sustainable food systems, supports value chain development, enhances agricultural governance, and strengthens capacities of relevant institutions. The organization also supports responsible agrifood systems, facilitates investments in various agriculture value chains, and collaborates with the government to improve infrastructure and create an enabling environment for investments. Cross-cutting areas include gender equality, youth empowerment, climate change mitigation, and environmental protection. FAO's initiatives in Liberia aim to strengthen preventive, anticipatory, absorptive, adaptive, and transformational capacities to empower local communities and foster sustainable development. This document reflects an analysis of ongoing FAO Liberia resilience building interventions and how they contribute towards the five capacities for resilience building, namely: Preventive: reduce existing and future risks; Anticipative: act early; Absorptive: the ability to bounce back, overwhelmingly humanitarian (emergency response); Adaptive: incremental adjustments; Transformative: make fundamental changes to the system. The five capacity areas are in most cases overlapping during specific project implementation, with the classification based on the overarching resilience capacity area.
