Guidance Notes - Livestock in Protracted Crises

Guidance Notes - Livestock in Protracted Crises
Dec 2016
  • Livestock contributes 40 percent of the global value of agricultural output and supports the livelihoods and food security of almost 1.3 billion people.
  • Half of the 800 million people living below USD 1.9/day depend on livestock, with both 95 percent of the extreme poor and 75 percent of all poor livestock keepers living in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia.
  • Protracted crises affect the livestock sector in several ways.
  • FAO supports communities and countries, including pastoralist communities, in shifting from reactive crisis responses to proactive anticipative risk reduction and management for sustainable agriculture-food and nutrition outcomes.
  • Building resilience in protracted crises requires innovative policy frameworks, better understanding of structural causes, and coordinated efforts to reduce communities’ exposure to shocks.
  • FAO works with governments and other partners to build resilient livelihoods and food systems in protracted crises through policy support, information and analysis, and livelihood support.
