FAO is working with partners in the Food Security and Agriculture Cluster to:

• Provide emergency agricultural, livestock and fishery kits to help restore vulnerable livelihoods.

• Improve immediate household availability of and access to food for the most vulnerable populations.

• Promote rural community resilience through the rehabilitation of water infrastructure and the transfer of agricultural and fishery assets.

• Ensure equitable access to assistance and protection for the most vulnerable populations.

• Strengthen emergency preparedness and response capacity of partners, communities and authorities.
