Please note: The Dashboard was edited on 12 December 2017 to reflect an updated "Funding Requirement Overview" due to an updated "Funding Received" figure.
The third 2017 Food Security and Livelihood Cluster Dashboard covers the period January – September, and includes a brief overview of the cluster response but also of the current needs highlighting that needs have grown deeper across the food security and livelihoods sector. Food insecurity is now affecting up to 1.2 million in Donbas with especially the most vulnerable struggling to meet their daily nutritional needs. Unemployment has doubled between 2013 and 2017, which significantly affects people’s income, their ability to cover basic needs and for some, leads to labour migration as a last resort. Without adequate food, agriculture and / or livelihood support, vulnerable people, many already at breaking point after four years of conflict, will be forced to apply even further negative coping strategies and make stark choices for survival.
