Re: Addressing food insecurity in protracted crises: Resilience-building programming

Pauline van der Aa Ministry of Foreign Affairs , Netherlands

Dear FSN coordinator,

What is needed for building resilience is holistic long term planning and programming with both humanitarian and development actors. In the planning root causes of the protracted crises needs to be addressed to find sustainable solutions. Essential is co-ordinated  engagement, capacity and expertise should be drawn from different policy communities. Joint working across departments must be stimulated and held accountable for shared results.

In the programming, a mix of funding instruments (both humanitarian as development) has to integrated to stimulate a smooth transition from crises to development. Key in building resilience is national ownership.
