Building Resilient Communities for Lasting Progress
When families, communities and countries are resilient, they can better cope and even thrive during hard times. Feed the Future builds resilience in areas where economic, conflict and weather-related shocks often recur.
We do so by strengthening and diversifying sources of income for vulnerable populations; managing risk through insurance and better access to financial services; using early warning information to better prepare for foreseeable shocks and stresses; improving natural resource management; diversifying diets for better nutrition; and more.
By empowering families and communities with the tools and resources they need to stand strong amid shocks and stresses, Feed the Future is helping build lasting food security and nutrition for future generations.
Studies have shown this not only saves lives and livelihoods, but is also cost-effective. By investing in long-term solutions today, we can reduce the need for costly humanitarian assistance in the future and help countries protect progress and advance toward self-reliance.
