- In April, WFP plans to conduct the seed protection programme in collaboration with FAO. To identify targeted people in need, WFP will overlay FAO’s identified zones of intervention with the high priority areas for WFP identified through an Emergency Food Security Assessment (EFSA), and where WFP is already operating. Beneficiaries will be conflicted-affected, severely food insecure small farm households who have displacement history, which includes internally displaced people currently living in host families and host families themselves. The economic indicators including asset depletion and dependency ratio, will also be taken into consideration. Priority will be given to female headed households.
- WFP will face a severe pipeline break in May 2016 due to lack of resources and requires USD 20.6 million to respond to the food security needs through the end of August.
Additional funds are urgently required to ensure that WFP will have the commodities on time.
Despite the fact that rations are reduced, WFP will suspend activities from June if no additional funds are secured, which will impact directly the lives of the affected populations.
