Emergency TCP projects support both anticipatory action and immediate responses to disasters and early rehabilitation measures through the timely delivery of essential agricultural inputs, services and training. TCP helps affected communities quickly resume food production and livelihood activities. The TCP also delivers technical and operational support. That includes forecasting, monitoring, regional or subregional technical and operational coordination, (such as for the Desert Locust Emergency); operational support to national surge capacity; products (e.g. outreach and training materials), technical documents and guidelines, strategies and action plans, and technical facilities/technology and equipment with the aim of enhancing local capacities to respond to or in preparation of a crisis.
