During the month of August 2021, FSL Cluster partners reported having reached 373,000 people with either in-kind food distribution, cash, or vouchers modality in both rural and urban areas. Among them, 359,808 received cash-based support in urban areas, 4,700 in rural areas while the remaining 8,400 beneficiaries received in-kind food assistance.
Support to address vulnerable populations continued in August with a major focus on urban resilience programming, predominantly through cash assistance, which represents 98% of the delivered assistance. Food in-kind in August has been delivered to some 8,388 people only, a very low number as expected at this time of the year. Likewise, the number of active partners is also quite limited, five overall, whereas WFP covers 86% of the overall reached people.
Concurrently, a total of 100,321 beneficiaries were supported with agriculture and livelihood assistance. This includes 31,000 people benefiting from the provision of small livestock (restocking, improved breeds) and other inputs/materials (e.g., hatcheries) (and related training), 19,000 individuals benefited from rehabilitation/construction of critical assets for animal survival and agriculture through cash for work/food for work (or assets) activities. 10,700 beneficiaries received assistance in the rehabilitation of critical assets for animal survival and agriculture (dip tanks and animal drinking troughs) through other modalities (e.g., contracting a company).
Additionally, 10,500 extension officers and farmers received training, extension, and advisory services focusing on good agriculture practices with an emphasis on climate-smart agriculture with an additional 21,900 receiving training on and inputs for agro-ecology interventions such as soil conservation practices, soil reclamation techniques, and restoration of degraded landscapes. Quite a large number of partners (10) are now active.
