Project General Description

The project entitled "Say No to famine - Short Term Regional Emergency Response Project (STRERP)" is a regional project for autonomous humanitarian aid and technical assistance structured as a holistic, flexible and fast emergency short term response. It responds to the humanitarian crisis caused by both drought and the conflict between Somalia and South Sudan. As a first step, the project aims to address the humanitarian emergency and food insecurity, and in a second step, to mitigate the impact of shocks on communities in the future, by enabling them to become resilient to shocks in the short term. Through this project, vulnerable communities will have immediate food, water, fodder, and health care. This momentum aims to build self-sufficiency and resilience to future shocks through extensive community consultation and management of their own activities while receiving food as a compensation. Through its interventions, STRERP will ensure sustainable improvement of food and nutrition security, livelihoods and resilience through effective risk management, protection of productive assets and governance of natural resources for agro-pastoral and peri-urban communities. The project’s total cost is estimated at UA 56,475 million. It is articulated around two components, namely: (i) nutritional and health support ; and (ii) foundations for the recovery and resilience to climate change.

Project Objectives

The overall development goal is to reduce food insecurity, hunger and malnutrition in times of crisis and promote long-term resilience and regional integration in the Horn of Africa region. STRERP’s specific objective is to provide food aid and emergency medical assistance to the most vulnerable populations in the Horn of Africa (particularly in Southern Sudan and Somalia), while laying the groundwork to strengthen links between the production, distribution and consumption poles of the food systems in affected regions.


In Southern Sudan, the project will provide 9,369 tons of food coupons to 300,000 beneficiaries. The populations concerned are either way facing a humanitarian emergency, a crisis or food insecurity according to IPC Report released in May 2017. Target beneficiaries will also include pastoral and agro-pastoral households, considered as the "most vulnerable" within their community.
