Afghanistan - Humanitarian Response Plan 2018

to assist
500 000 people

FAO requires
USD 10.5 million

period
January – December 2018

Conflict, natural disasters and cross-border movements continue to increase food insecurity in Afghanistan. Recurrent violence, economic slowdown, crop pests and natural hazards, such as drought and flooding, increased the vulnerability of already severely food-insecure populations, many living in hard-to-reach areas.

Objectives

FAO is working with partners in the Food Security and Agriculture Cluster to:

• Provide life-saving assistance.

• Protect livelihoods.

• Strengthen emergency preparedness and response capabilities of Cluster partners.
