Promoting Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment in Fisheries and Aquaculture

Social Protection in Protracted Crises, Humanitarian and Fragile Contexts. FAO’s Agenda for Action for Social Protection and Cash-Based Programmes

FAO recognizes that scaling-up cash-based programming and risk-informed and shock-responsive social protection systems is a strategic priority in particular to improve food security and nutrition and protect households' assets as well as increase income of the most vulnerable population.

Today, more than 1.9 billion people in 136 countries benefit from social assistance programmes and approximately 718 million people are enrolled in cash transfer programmes.
