From my past experience with WFP and others food relief agencies, resilience to food insecurity depends on a spectrum of production and consumption pattern as well as the intensity of disruptions made by protracted conflicts. However, two factors are pro resilience regardless to severity of food insecurity, the first is the proper targeting to minimizing the total errors of inclusive and exclusive of needy people and the second is the dietary balance of the food ration distributed. Both factors should restore resilience though increased market led productivity and production of domestic food, albeit in the long term when conflicts are cooling down.
