The armed conflict in eastern Ukraine – now in its fourth year – is affecting 4.4 million people. Some 1.6 million people need food security and livelihoods assistance. The most vulnerable groups are single-headed households with children, elderly people, women-headed households and households with no employment.
FAO is working with partners in the Food Security and Livelihood Cluster to:
• Provide immediate food assistance to the most vulnerable to avoid irreversible negative coping mechanisms.
• Assist farming families to support their household food security needs with self-production and channelling surplus to functional markets for income generation.
• Provide early recovery livelihoods and income-generation support to conflict-affected populations, including displaced people and host families, to strengthen their resilience.
