It has a population of about 498,840 and consists of ten districts # Ishtarlay, Kejran, Khidar, Keti, Miramor, Shahrestan, Nawamish, Pato, Sange Takht, and Nilli. Daikundi is located mainly in central mountains# wheat, dry fruit and livestock livelihoods zone, even in a normal year this zone is at risk of food insecurity [FEWSNET]. The key livelihood activities for the poor populations are crop production (wheat and almond), livestock keeping and daily labour activities. Based on the evidence from IPC 2019, the province is categorized in phase 3. However, there are 20% of the population living in Phase 4 during the projected period from November 2019 to March 2020. Daikundi is among the provinces that are facingfood deficit this year, where the major income sources of poor HH comprising agriculture labor, crop sales, and livestock sales. Although the precipitation was quite good with comparing to last year, again this year the province faced with a wheat deficit of 25160 MT, and at the meantime, multiple shocks like floods, losing employment opportunity and decreases in income, increases in food andnon-food prices, protracted drought and other natural disasters in the previous years,lack of access to agriculture inputs, crop pests and disease and problems in cultivation ultimately contributed to the limitation of access to food in this province during the current lean season. Through this proposed project Oxfam through FAO fund intends to provide agriculture inputs to a sum of 39,200 persons (5,600 households) in 4 districts of Daykundi, province. This includes selection of target villages with the support from the village selection committee, household assessment, and selection ofthe eligible beneficiaries, warehousing management, distribution of agriculture inputs (50 kg wheat seeds, 50 kg urea, 50kg DAP, and home gardening tools per beneficiary/ household) and training 100% of the beneficiary households on agriculture best practices. It is notable that certified wheat seed and fertilizers are critically needed in the target locations to enables/empower the farmers for the wheat seed cultivation season and in the meantime the seed support will enable the farmers who have access toland, for the cultivation of the main staple, restore their economy and ensure sustainable access to food and seed. Certified wheat seeds and fertilizers will be purchased, delivered to each target districts center by FAO
