Creating opportunities for rural youth
Summary record, RPCA restricted meeting, 16-18 April 2018
Published on : April 2018
The critical pastoral situation in the Sahelian belt was the key focus of RPCA members who discussed how national response plans can be strengthened to better protect the livelihoods of pastoral and agro-pastoral communities. The performance and effectiveness of some of these response plans to food and nutrition crises were reviewed under the second evaluation of the “Charter for Food Crisis Prevention and Management”. Provisional results point to significant funding gaps, poor implementation, and an overall lack of ownership by governments. New mapping tools will promote the sharing and scaling-up of best practices on resilience; provide an overview of who is doing what and where on the ground in terms of food and nutrition security and resilience interventions; and make data on the current, projected and past food and nutrition situations more accessible to stakeholders.
