Empowering farming, fishing and pastoralist communities in South Sudan for resilient livelihoods through sustainable food productivity and environmentally sound income generating activities for food and nutrition security.

Sector/Cluster : Food Security and Livelihoods (FSL)

Objectives : The overall objective is to improve food security and livelihoods for food and nutrition through intensification of household production and diversification of income generating opportunities while safeguarding the environment with

sustainable agriculture, fisheries and livestock practices using appropriate technologies and practices.

Beneficiaries : Total: 1,291,000 Beneficiaries will be households whose livelihoods have collapsed and unable to recover from shocks to ensure food and nutrition security through their own production, market sales or access to income. Primary beneficiaries will be female headed households including returnees, refugees, IDPs, flood affected and vulnerable host communities. Given serious threats to the nutritional status of children and vulnerable groups including

prison detainees, initiatives are designed to enhance dietary diversity through own production of nutritious food, access to income and enhanced access to milk and fish, both cost-effective strategies for preventing malnutrition. Pastoralist men, women, boys and girls at risk of conflict are included as

intended beneficiaries, with initiatives strategically designed to promote interand intra-communal harmony through informed approaches to service delivery and emergency livestock nutrition. FAO will closely work with partners, State Ministry of Agriculture and Animal Resources and other agencies including IOM, WFP and local authorities (RRC) in identification and effective targeting of the most vulnerable food insecure but economically active men, women, girls

and boys in food production.

Children: 300,000

Women: 839,150

Other group: 151,850 Men (vulnerable but economically active)

Need : South Sudan is characterized by high rates of food and nutrition insecurity (CFSAM, 2012) and poverty (>50%)

SSCCSE, 2010). Within a multi-hazard environment, drivers of food insecurity include limited access to

production factors including quality seed and farm equipment and poor post-harvest technologies, emergence

of crop and animal pests and diseases, dearth of institutional capacities including weak extension services

and dilapidated physical infrastructure resulting in huge transaction costs and market failures.

Over 100 000 people and 10 million livestock have been reported to be disp
