The overall objective is to continue to reduce the food insecurity induced by the on-going drought and high food prices with special focus on vulnerable groups. This will be achieved by attaining the following specific objectives:
• Improve food access and nutrition status of drought-affected, urban poor and refugee populations.
• Support livestock and agriculture-based production capacities, increase the resilience to shocks of vulnerable households affected by the drought and enhance their ability to preserve assets through risk mitigation measures.
• Increase drought-affected communities‟ access to water in order to promote survival and maintenance of livelihood options as well as resilience to drought.
• Strengthen capacity of vulnerable rural communities and national institutions to be prepared for, withstand and respond to shocks, provide essential services and monitor the food security situation.
