FAO in South Sudan - Emergency Livelihood Response Programme: Lessons learned in 2015
Dec 2015

In 2015, volatile security conditions and increasing access constraints posed considerable challenges to the implementation of FAO South Sudan’s Emergency Livelihoods Response Programme (ELRP). Despite the increasing complexity and deepening impact of the crisis, FAO has achieved remarkable results and built on valuable experiences. By continually adapting its strategy to meet the evolving needs of the population, FAO in South Sudan uses a multi-track approach (survival, emergency, development) to provide emergency assistance to conflict-affected communities and support to food production and availability in areas less affected by the crisis.
