FSLC 2024-2026 Strategy

In 2023, the FSL Cluster held consultations with various stakeholders to prepare the FSLC Strategy 2024-2026. This included discussions on response strategies, complementarities between partners and strategic objectives such as food aid, emergency livelihoods and resilience. The sustainability of the response was emphasized, with a focus on community priorities and collaboration with development, peacebuilding, government and private sector actors. Consultations with target communities helped identify constraints to food security and potential solutions. The recommendations formulated in this medium-term strategy were reviewed and validated by the cluster lead agencies. The strategy will be operationalized through the annual HRPs and reviewed annually based on lessons learned from implementation.
