Four Famines: Fragility, Resilience, and the Role of International Development
Description: More than 20 million people in Yemen, Somalia, South Sudan, and Nigeria are facing famine conditions and possible starvation. It has been called the largest humanitarian crisis the world has seen in decades. Of the $4.9 billion the United Nations desperately needs to respond to these crises, only $2.5 billion has been received. Meanwhile, the humanitarian disaster is deepening, largely due to escalating conflict in each of the four countries. Humanitarian assistance and international development have different objectives and time horizons, but must work together to respond to the crisis at hand while also preventing the next one from occurring. What role does international development play in building long-term resilience? What are the linkages between conflict, fragility, and severe food insecurity? How can U.S. leadership and international development programming break the cycle of instability and famine?

Silent starvation in Chad's Lake Region
Description: The conflict between Boko Haram and the military operations to defeat it that began in Nigeria have spread to Niger, Chad and Cameroon, causing one of the worst humanitarian crises in Africa. In Chad, 350,000 people are in danger of starvation due to failing food supplies, losing their animals, their lands and crops, and being unable to carry out activities like fishing. The massive movements of people and difficulties in growing crops or distributing aid have left more than 8 million people on the brink of starvation. Oxfam is there, YOU can help: We provide people with emergency food support and cash and vouchers so they can buy food from local markets, clean water and better sanitation, including constructing showers and toilets. We are distributing food and cooking equipment, as well as providing seeds and tools to help traders and farmers.

From survival and subsistence to thriving, dignified lives
Description: The Enhancing Community Resilience Programme (ECRP) in Malawi has worked to eradicate extreme poverty and hunger, reduce vulnerability and strengthen the resilience of around 420,000 people across parts of Malawi the hardest hit by climate change. ECRP has enabled vulnerable households to move beyond survival and subsistence, to enjoy thriving and dignified lives. This means enough food and a steady income, safe conditions, and the resources and confidence to embrace new opportunities and manage risks that threaten them. The programme has been funded by UK aid, Irish Aid and the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, receiving more than £15m over almost six years until 2017. To find out more about ECRP, visit the Christian Aid programmes website:

Mothers Sharing Strength to Overcome Hunger: Porridge Moms in Northeast Nigeria
Description: Action Against Hunger is proud to share the inspiring story of a courageous group of mothers uprooted from their homes by the violence caused by the Boko Haram insurgency in northeast Nigeria. Action Against Hunger launched the “Porridge Moms” program in Maiduguri in northeast Nigeria's Borno State to provide vulnerable displaced women with a daily nutritious meal, as well as health education and training to prevent their at-risk children from becoming severely malnourished. The Porridge Moms program also provides these mothers with a critical peer support network, a “sisterhood” where they can help each other cope with the trauma, violence, and loss they have endured.
