The Food Security and Livelihoods Cluster (FSLC) in Ukraine works to address issues related to food security and livelihood interventions.
The FSLC was established on 23 December 2014 in Ukraine in order to coordinate the response to the most vulnerable people affected by the crisis in Ukraine. The FSLC is led by Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) in Ukraine.
In 2021, the FSL cluster has three (3) key objectives:
1. Ensure immediate access to food for the most vulnerable people affected by conflict and/or СOVID-19.
2. Improve food security through the provision of emergency and time-critical agriculture assistance.
3. Enhance the resilience of vulnerable people affected by conflict and/or COVID-19 by restoring agriculture and non-agriculture livelihoods and promoting resilience to shocks.
The FSL Cluster will continue to engage its partners, advocating for improved coordination, information flow and rationalized targeting across crisis-affected areas. The cluster targets primarily the most vulnerable population groups including IDPs, returnees in safe areas, host communities and the local population affected by the conflict. The cluster will continue to work to ensure that appropriate assistance is provided in a timely and efficient manner.
