Conflict and natural disasters, such as drought, floods, and insect infestations, can have critical impacts on the food security and livelihoods of affected populations. USAID’s Office of U.S. Foreign Disaster Assistance (USAID/OFDA) supports agriculture and food security interventions that increase livelihood opportunities and address the basic food requirements of disaster-affected populations. USAID/OFDA also works to strengthen local disaster response capacity and increase community resilience to shocks that could negatively affect livelihoods and food security. In the aftermath of disasters, USAID/OFDA supports agricultural infrastructure rehabilitation and economic recovery by providing agriculture-based livelihood assistance. USAID/OFDA-funded programs also support animal health, livestock and fisheries, pest control initiatives, and provision of agricultural inputs to vulnerable households.
