Safeguarding Lives, Improving Food Security and Nutrition, and Building Resilience (Yemen)


Titre : Safeguarding Lives, Improving Food Security and Nutrition, and Building Resilience (Yemen)

Pays : Yemen

Durée : July 2014–June 2016

Présentation _ The situation in Yemen is characterized by insecurity, large-scale displacement, a breakdown of social services and poverty. This operation will support a shift from relief assistance to recovery and resilience to promote food and nutrition security. Beneficiaries will include internally displaced persons and returnees, vulnerable populations in most food-insecure areas, people affected by transient crises, infants, pregnant and lactating women affected by acute and chronic malnutrition, and school-age children.

The operation is based on assessments such as WFP’s July 2013 food security monitoring survey, the 2013 country programme baseline survey by the United Nations Children’s Fund, 2011–2013 nutrition surveys and the 2011 comprehensive food security survey.
The operation will assist many of Yemen’s 4.5 million severely food-insecure people through unconditional household food or cash distributions, conditional participatory food-assistance activities, nutritional support for the treatment and prevention of acute and chronic malnutrition and micronutrient deficiencies, and meals and take-home rations for schoolchildren to improve attendance, nutrition and learning.
The operation was planned and will be implemented in partnership with government ministries, United Nations agencies, the World Bank, non-governmental organizations and donors in line with the Joint United Nations Framework to Support the Transition in Yemen and the Yemen Humanitarian Response Plan. It will align WFP’s activities with moves to increase the Government’s capacity to respond to the crisis and will promote recovery and resilience to enable food-insecure households and communities to better withstand and recover from the effects of conflict and shocks

Under Strategic Objective 1, it will : (i) maintain acceptable food security among internally displaced persons (IDPs) and returnees ; (ii) ensure effective treatment of acute malnutrition among children aged 6–59 months and PLW in areas most affected by global acute malnutrition ; and (iii) maintain the food security of vulnerable households affected by natural disasters or conflict.
Under Strategic Objective 2 it will : (i) improve food security, self-reliance and income-generating opportunities among the most food-insecure populations ; (ii) help to reduce acute and chronic malnutrition and address micronutrient deficiencies by enhancing the feeding of young children, maternal nutrition and micronutrient intake among school-age children ; (iii) increase access to education, particularly for girls ; and (iv) enhance national capacities to address food and nutrition insecurity.
Under Strategic Objective 3 it will improve livelihoods and enhance resilience among food-insecure communities and households.
