Armed conflicts constitute main obstacles to sustainable development. They create enormous human suffering and make pathways out of poverty more difficult. By 2030, OECD estimates that over 60% of the world’s poor will be living in countries affected by conflict and fragility.

FAO promotes the use and scale up of Cash+ as a flexible tool for promoting resilience and social protection. By providing cash transfers plus agricultural inputs, assets and/or training, FAO’s approach to Cash+ enables beneficiaries to address their immediate needs while supporting their livelihoods and productive capacity.

This is the first annual report produced by the newly established Communicable Diseases Cluster (CDS) of the World Health Organization (WHO) Regional Office for Africa.

Preface

Although the importance of women’s contribution to the agricultural sector in developing countries is now widely acknowledged, there is little systematic evidence on how gender gaps in control over resources have changed over time in response to agricultural policy and technological interventions.
