CERF-funded Project


Anticipatory action against compounding food security threats in Somalia (20-RR-FAO-026)

Project overview

The main aim of this project is to mitigate declines in food consumption and loss of livelihoods in view of projected crop and vegetation destruction linked to desert locust and flooding. The $2.3 million from CERF will enable FAO to vaccinate 6 million goats at risk of transboundary diseases and conduct desert locust control across 20,000 ha by way of aerial and ground operations. 900,000 vulnerable pastoralists in Somaliland and Puntland will be supported through this project.
