In 2019, the humanitarian community is collectively targeting 68 million people globally with both lifesaving and livelihoods food security assistance. There are 28 consolidated response plans involving FSC partners and national governments, with an overall value of USD 9 billion for the food security sector alone. In light of limited resources and competing crises, partners are implementing activities tailored contextually, and are ensuring that inter-sectoral collaboration is streamlined particularly with the Nutrition, Health and WASH Clusters. Protracted, conflict related crises in Syria, Yemen, South Sudan, Nigeria and Somalia remain as priorities, in addition to the unfolding crises of Mozambique, Burkina Faso, Venezuela. Food Security responses account for almost 42% of the overall global appeal in 2019.
