Contribute to improving the food and nutritional situation for 9,750 persons (1,625 households) which are in food insecurity situation in Mauritania.
In Mauritania, the 2016/2017 rain season was characterized by more than 58% of the rainfall stations which recorded a cumulative rainfall deficit compared to last year. Rainfall deficits exceeding 100 mm have been recorded in several Wilayas in the south of the country, notably at the level of the two Hodhs, in Assaba, in Brakna, in Gorgol, in Trarza and in Guidimagha. That situation greatly affected the situation of crops, particularly rain-fed crops, which in most areas have produced a low or non-existent level of production. This projects takes place in the Brakna and Gorgol regions of Mauritania.
To assist tackling food security and malnutrition, this project covers the immediate food and non food needs of affected populations, employs a community-based resilience program to protect households’ livelihoods, and conducts continuous needs assessment.
This project seeks to reach 9,750 persons who are food insecure.
