Introduction to Food Security Intervention Principles

Food security and livelihood programmes are an important part of our varied response to this plague and this booklet covers some of our action in this area:

  • Understand the concepts of food security
  • Better understand the project cycle and the analysis of food security
  • Reinforce prevention by establishing surveillance systems.
  • Have coherent responses to emergencies with food aid and cash-based programming
  • Develop the capacities of the populations in the medium term by providing the opportunity to engage in income-generating activities and in the longer term to develop their means of agricultural production and self-sufficiency.
