FAO requires
USD 6.2 million

period
January – December 2018

Cameroon is facing multiple complex emergencies, mainly in the Far North region due to the Boko Haram insurgency, the crisis in the North-West and South-West regions as well as the crisis linked to incoming refugees from the Central African Republic in the eastern regions. All three are characterized by armed conflict, significantly affecting the population and exacerbating their vulnerabilities.

Objectives

FAO is working with partners of the Food Security Cluster to:

• Collect and analyse data on risks and vulnerabilities and integrate results in the humanitarian and development programme.

• Strengthen the resilience of vulnerable populations and support local actors in dealing with shocks.

• Provide vulnerable populations with coordinated and integrated lifesaving assistance.

• Advocate for access to protection and promote and strengthen accountability to affected populations.
