  • Built capacity of Sector Partners (focusing on national partners) to deliver services effectively and efficiently through training on project cycle management, accountability to affected populations.
  • 59.5 tonnes of sorghum and sesame seeds, 850 kg of okra and 50 kg of cucumber seeds were procured and distributed to 9 500 households, over half of which were headed by women.
  • Provided training to seed recipients on improved agronomic practices and trained Village Development Committees on sustainable use and management of natural resources.
Impact:
  • Food security assessments, reviews and both gap- and response analyses were used as important sources of evidence to accurately guide planning and operations of Sector strategies and programmes.
  • FSL Sector inputs were coordinated and provided for the 2016 Humanitarian Needs Overview and Humanitarian Response Plan.
  • Supported households to achieve higher yields than average through the provision of improved seed varieties and training on good agricultural practices.
  • Improved income generation among beneficiary households, enabling them to earn up to USD 253 through the sale of surplus produce.
  • The seed distribution component of the project improved the daily nutrient intake of beneficiaries and contributed to a longer-term improvement of food security in a region characterized by frequent population movements.
