Somalia: FAO – Somalia Information and Resilience Building Action (SIRA)

Planned project

The Somali population has remained chronically food insecure over the years with acute emergency needs increasing during the cyclic drought periods. Switzerland contributes, through its support to the Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO), to the longer-term resilience building of the Somali communities by supporting the provision of information and data for decision making, the formulation of evidence-based policy making and  the use of the data for increased protection and resilience.
