The objective of the Food Security and Agriculture (FSA) Working Group /Sector is to develop a harmonized programmatic approach to contribute to food security and nutrition, and promote agricultural livelihoods, as well as to coordinate an effective response with the involvement of all relevant FSA actors responding to the Syria Crisis in Turkey. It focuses on building the resilience of most vulnerable communities, through promoting food security and nutrition and/or access to agriculture livelihoods opportunities among Syrian refugees. In line with national priorities, the FSA sector will seek to scale up programming (moving beyond household-level interventions) to pursue opportunities for the provision of large and medium scale agriculture livelihoods support.  Emphasis will be placed in promoting household food security and nutrition, as well as creating and expanding employment and business opportunities in the agricultural sector through strengthening FSA-related skills and knowledge among national partners. From 2019, food assistance activities in Turkey are coordinated through the Basic Needs Sector Working Group.
