When a humanitarian crisis hits, the Food Security Cluster (FSC) coordinates the food security response, addressing issues of food availability, access and utilization. In 2013, the FSC responded to several major emergencies, including the system-wide Level 3 emergencies in the Philippines and the Central African Republic (C.A.R). In addition, it provided a coordination solution in Gaziantep, Turkey in response to the Level 3 emergency in Syria, and continued its support to several long-running crises, including Somalia, Yemen and Afghanistan.
