The overall goal of the proposed Multinational project is to increase agricultural production, productivity and resilience of agricultural production systems in the target countries to mitigate the short, medium and long-term risks aggravated by the crisis in Ukraine. The specific project objective is to strengthen national institutions in the four countries to better respond to current and future crises by scaling up the production and availability of EGS, leveraging existing tools and frameworks for emergency preparedness and developing investment operations to safeguard food security, particularly in the most vulnerable regions within the countries.
This intervention concerns the strengthening Emergency Preparedness and Response to Food Crisis in Burundi, Comoros, Somalia and South Sudan. It aims to increase agricultural production, productivity and resilience of agricultural production systems in target countries to mitigate risks in the short and medium terms aggravated by the war in Ukraine. This will boost the local production of cereals and oil grains as the most effective and efficient way to build the resilience of Africa’s food systems to respond to these circumstances and mitigate risks to supply in the short to medium term. The proposed project will complement the ongoing AEFPF projects in Burundi, Comoros, Somalia, and South Sudan by supporting national institutions to scale up the production of early generation seeds for priority food and fodder crops and building institutional capacity for early warning and anticipatory actions. The project will be implemented through three (3) components: (i) Scale up production of early generation seeds; (ii) Expand and integrate digital platforms on early warning and anticipatory actions; and (iii) Institutional strengthening and Project coordination and management.
