Population growth, lagging food production and climate change threaten food stability.
23 JUN 2017 / BY ALEX PORTER AND STELLAH KWASI
A rapidly growing population in Southern Africa means an increasingly higher food demand. And although domestic food production is expected to rise over the next few decades in response to this need, it is unlikely that the increases will be able to keep pace. As a result, food demand will outstrip domestic food supply.

Background and rationale
DTM Assessment in Rann | Borno State, Nigeria
Situated on the international border between Cameroon and Nigeria, Kala Balge is a Local Government Area (LGA) in the conflict-affected Nigerian State of Borno. The headquarters is Rann which is made up of 10 wards in total.
DTM Assessment in Kukawa | Borno State, Nigeria
Located in the northern part of the conflict-affected state of Borno, Kukawa Local Government Area borders Lake Chad. Out of its 10 wards, only four are accessible, namely: Baga, Doro, Kauwa and Kukawa.
Baga is its most prominent town being a major fishing port on the shore of Lake Chad. Baga became inaccessible after the town was attacked and occupied by Boko Haram in January 2015, leading to number of fishermen abandoning their sole means of livelihood as a result of the displacement.
The conflict in the eastern regions of Ukraine has made the upgrading of local services, such as the creation of Centers for Administrative Service Provision (TsNAPs), much more difficult. So as a part of the UNDP Recovery and Peacebuilding Programme and with funding from the European Union, a project was implemented to equip the TsNAP in the city of Druzhkivka with everything it needs to be fully operational.
