    Meeting fuel and energy needs in protracted crises 2016
    Also available in:

    This note focuses on the topic of access to fuel and energy in protracted crises, and the possible solutions using the SAFE approach, illustrated by case studies from FAO's interventions in protracted crisis situations. Access to fuel and energy – vital for food security – is often highly constrained in protracted crises. The risks posed by limited access to fuel and energy are multiple and diverse depending on the context, including malnutrition, environmental degradation, a high work burden fo r women, gender-based violence (GBV) and unsustainable livelihood activities. The inter-agency Safe Access to Fuel and Energy (SAFE) initiative and FAO’s work on SAFE address the multi-sectoral challenges associated with energy and contribute to resilience-building in protracted crises. They also make a contribution to a number of principles in the Committee on Food Security Framework for Action (CFS-FFA). This guidance note draws on FAO experience and lessons learned to support FAO staff and st rategic partners in addressing energy access as part of food and nutrition security interventions in situations of protracted crisis. Its purpose is to contribute to the implementation of the CFS-FFA principles and demonstrate that understanding and responding to fuel and energy needs and related risks are critical for effective and sustainable food and nutrition security interventions in protracted crises.

    Gender, food security and nutrition in protracted crises 2016
    Also available in:

    This note focuses on the topic of gender in protracted crisis situations. It advocates that FAO’s mandate to achieve food security for all by raising levels of nutrition, increasing agricultural productivity and natural resource management, and improving the lives of rural populations can only be achieved through gender equality. Past experience can provide guidance on how to address gender equality as part of food and nutrition security interventions in situations of protracted crisis. Understa nding and addressing how men and women of different ages are specifically affected by protracted crises is critical for effective and sustainable food and nutrition security interventions. The note includes case studies from FAO's interventions in protracted crisis situations.

    Food and Nutrition Security Resilience Programme – Building food system resilience in protracted crises
    Briefing note – South Sudan

    The Food and Nutrition Security Resilience Programme (FNS-REPRO) of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), funded by the Government of the Netherlands, is a four-year plan addressing the cause–effect relationship between conflict and food insecurity in Somalia, South Sudan and the Sudan. FNS-REPRO is the first programme in Eastern Africa specifically designed to foster peace and food security at scale. The programme employs a livelihood and resilience-based approach in some of the least stable regions, where interventions are normally exclusively of a humanitarian nature. Its design will allow FAO and partners to set good examples of how to build food system resilience in protracted crises and strengthen cooperation across the humanitarian-development-peace nexus towards this end. In South Sudan, the seed sector has been selected as the entry point value chain of FNS-REPRO with the objective to close the cereal production gap, while eventually providing more diversified products for local, national and export markets.
