Objective:

To ensure that affected populations receive appropriate and sufficient food security solutions in times of emergency.

Key partners:

World Food Programme 

Beneficiaries reached:

46 members of the Food Security and Agriculture Cluster (FSAC), including United Nations agencies, national and international Non-governmental Organizations and community-based organizations.

Activities implemented:
  • Organized monthly meetings among FSAC partners to share information on the implementation of their respective programmes across the country.
  • Facilitated the production and/or circulation of various food security assessments and analysis reports to provide baseline data for the 2014 Yemen Humanitarian Response Plan (YHRP).
  • Engaged Cluster partners in the development of the 2014 Food Security Strategic Response Plan, which was fully integrated into the 2014 YHRP.
  • Implemented a new information management system to eliminate gaps and overlaps in Cluster partners’ service delivery.
  • Attended meetings of various clusters (Early Recovery, Health, Nutrition, etc.) to enhance intersectoral coordination.
  • Facilitated the implementation of emergency food distribution activities for internally displaced and conflict-affected populations, as well as safety net and cash and voucher programmes (conditional and unconditional cash assistance benefited 130 000 people in 2013; 55 000 people assisted and improved their food consumption scores in the first six months of 2014).
Impact:
  • Made considerable progress in increasing the FSAC’s field presence, analysing food security gaps and building the capacity of its partners.
  • Enhanced synergies in terms of programme approaches, geographical coverage and needs assessments through improved information sharing among partners.
  • Enabled partners to better prioritize interventions and use resources more efficiently.
  • Helped to identify priority areas of intervention, allowing for targeted advocacy messages to be disseminated to the donor community.
  • Increased awareness of FSAC’s activities among non-traditional donors, providing new funding opportunities for Cluster members.
  • Contributed to ensuring continued stable and predictable leadership for humanitarian agencies operating in the food security and agriculture sector in Yemen.
