FAO Agricultural Development Economics Policy Briefs 51
Year: 2022
Author(s): FAO

The findings in this brief have been adapted from the FAO Agricultural Development Economics Working Paper 22-08 Enhancing refugees’ self-reliance in Uganda – The role of cash and food assistance.

Rethinking the land-based self-reliance model is essential to support refugees’ integration and to build their self-reliance in the long-term. The transition toward a refugee policy that focuses on a broader food value chain development and off-farm activities’ enhancement is also recommended to reach both short- and long-term development.
