Life-saving emergency livelihood response to flood affected and displaced communities (20-RR-FAO-030)

Project overview

The proposed intervention will provide life-saving livelihood support to a total of 180,000 people in Crisis and Emergency phases of food insecurity (IPC 3 or worse), who have been displaced due to the floods in Jonglei and Lake States. The engagement will focus on the rapid provision of fishing kits in first 2 to 3 months of the project, to take advantage of the abundance of fish following the breeding period in flooded areas, which can contribute to same-day food and nutrition security of displaced people. The engagement will be based on the Integrated Rapid Needs Assessments (IRNA) already conducted. The inputs, already available in FAO field hubs, will be distributed in through IOM downstream partners with whom contracts were already signed and other partner organizations of the South Sudan Humanitarian Fund.
