Project General Description

This project, entitled “Say No to Famine”- Addressing Food and Nutrition Insecurity in North-East Nigeria seeks to curb fragility aggravated by the Boko Haram insurgency. It’s part of ongoing Federal Government efforts toward North-East States’ Emergency Transition, Recovery and Peacebuilding, elaborated by the five-year programmatic “Buhari Plan” of 2016. The project will provide conflict-affected populations of Borno, Adamawa and Yobe with the means to resume agriculture-based and other environment-friendly livelihoods, thereby allowing them to progressively sustain their own food and nutritional needs. In doing so, the project will set the foundations for longer-term resilience building and sustainable economic and social development. The project is anchored on three key components: 1) Safety nets (through food and nutrition security), 2) Livelihoods (agriculture and infrastructure), and 3) Natural resource management and climate smart agriculture and capacity strengthening and augmentation.

Project Objectives

The project’s overarching objective is to provide conflict-affected populations with the means to resume agriculture-based and other environmental-friendly livelihoods, thereby allowing them to progressively sustain their own food and nutritional needs. The development objective is to promote agricultural and environmental-friendly livelihoods, while maintaining food and nutrition security among conflict affected populations of Borno, Yobe and Adamawa States, through a combination of productive support measures and social transfers.

Beneficiaries

The rural population in the States of Borno, Adamawa and Yobe, are the primary beneficiaries of the project.
