‘The concept of food system resilience analyses how system components and their actors (from producer, middleman, traders, consumers etc.), are affected by – and respond to shocks and stressors, accounting for ripple effects across the food system, providing insights into varying existing and required resilience capacities and strategies which enable system actors and components to mitigate, prepare for and recover from negative impacts ensuring desired, (improved) socio-economic, environmental and food and nutrition security outcomes.’
FNS-REPRO is a four-year programme that addresses the cause-effect relationship between conflict and food insecurity, through a multi-year livelihood and resilience-based approach, in Somalia, South Sudan, and Sudan.
FNS-REPRO focus is on select value chains, chosen for their central role in agropastoral and farming livelihoods. This ranges from the survival of people and animals during humanitarian crises to improved resource management and livelihood diversification.
