Over 2.5-million people in South Sudan received almost 460-000 emergency livelihood kits in 2016, providing them with a critical source of food
Cash-for-work interventions by FAO has provided vital income and is restoring crucial infrastructure for conflict-affected communities in retaken areas near Mosul in northern Iraq. The irrigation networks provide water for 250-000 ha of farmland, and when flowing again, will benefit up to 200-000 farm labourers
FAO is complementing the Government’s social protection cash transfers programme in Lesotho with home gardening and nutrition kits, currently supporting 70-000-households
Cash-for-work interventions by FAO provided vital income and restored crucial infrastructure for droughtaffected communities in northern Somalia. Each rehabilitated water catchment can store enough water for more than 2 000 animals for three months
Within weeks of Hurricane Matthew, FAO was distributing bean seeds and cassava planting materials to 25-050 affected families in Haiti
In 2016, 5.8-million animals in Syria were treated against ecto- and endo-parasites, reducing health risks and associated animal production losses
In Burundi, almost 34-200-households received crop and vegetable seeds, providing not only a crucial source of nutrition, but giving them the option to grow throughout the year and sell surplus produce in local markets
In 2016, more than 7-000 households in West Bank and Gaza Strip received critical livelihood support, including the distribution of 2-300 tonnes of drought-tolerant seeds, 680 date palm offshoots and 17-000 fruit tree and pineapple seedlings, along with the establishment of more than 90-cisterns and the rehabilitation of 11-wells and six reservoirs
FAO and humanitarian partners distributed 32-000-tonnes of seed, saving the livelihoods of 1.5-million drought-hit farmers in Ethiopia in 2016. The seed restored depleted household supplies and is estimated to have saved close to USD-1-billion in food aid needs by enabling households to grow their own food, independently
In the Central African Republic, FAO’s distribution of groundnut, cereal and sesame seeds and tools enabled farmers to produce 42-720-tonnes of food crops
In areas of Yemen that were secure, ground surveys were conducted to monitor the Desert Locust situation. More than 600-ha of infestations were treated, which helped to reduce local threats and losses to crops
In Chad, about 31 000 internally displaced persons, returnees and host populations benefited from FAO assistance in 2016, including providing cereal, pulse and vegetable seeds, irrigation kits, post-harvest equipment, training and destocking activities to enhance food production and nutritional intake
 FAO supported more than 70-000 drought-hit households in Zimbabwe through vaccination campaigns against anthrax (600-000-doses), footand-mouth disease (570-000-doses) and Newcastle disease (12-million doses)
FAO has reached 164-700 flood- and conflict-affected people in Rakhine State, Myanmar through agriculturerelated livelihood programming aimed at improving disaster risk reduction and building more resilient communities
In 2016, FAO convened critical fora with partners to raise awareness on El Niño, including supporting the Southern African Development Community’s high-level prioritization meeting in February, co-organizing two major conferences on El Niño with Heads of State in March and July and supporting a high-level meeting on resilience in the Dry Corridor in June
