Short Description:

Overall goal

A massive international aid operation over the past two years has helped to prevent a serious humanitarian crisis in Southern Africa. Although some parts of the region have registered marked improvements in cereal crop production, the 2004 crop, food and vulnerability assessments of the World Food Programme (WFP) found that 5 million people in rural areas will continue to face critical food shortages of varying duration in the upcoming years.

The Austrian contribution will support the Protracted Relief and Recovery Operation (PRRO) of the World Food Programme (WFP) with a special focus on Mozambique. The regional PRRO offers a programming framework for multi-sectoral activity to support food-insecure households affected by erratic climate and people affected by HIV/AIDS and extreme poverty. Safety-net programmes for vulnerable populations and therapeutic supplementary feeding for people susceptible to food shortages will continue. Food-for-work activities and vocational training will support alternative income-creation and contribute to strengthening community structures. School feeding will provide incentives to keep children in school, especially girls and orphans.
