South Sudan, FAO, Improving nutrition and resilience in Warrap

01.08.2014 - 30.06.2016

With an unfolding internal armed conflict, the food security situation in South Sudan is severely deteriorating. Due to insecurity and displacement, many people were not able to attend their fields and gardens during the planting season, which will affect harvests towards the end of the year. Under the goal to boost sustainable agriculture, the main objective of this project is to increase the resilience (food security, livelihoods and income) of 1350 households and to improve production, food availability and access of nutritious food sources in Warrap State. By targeting an area that is affected by food insecurity but is relatively stable, the project aims at improving food security in the area and reducing the dependency on food aid.
