Haiti, Palliant, Nippes departement,  21 November 2017  As the only low-income country in the Americas, the Republic of Haiti in the Caribbean continues to face significant humanitarian, political and development challenges. Three-quarters of Haitians live on less than US$2 per day, and half of the population earns less than US$1 per day. Many people don’t have ready access to electricity, water, sanitation or healthcare.  WFP helps 225,000 people through a Food for Assets programme that builds community resilience while meeting immediate food needs. Participants receive cash transfers in return for helping with projects such as building infrastructure, protecting watersheds and strengthening the skills of rural farmers.  UNDP Haiti and WFP Haiti have recently launched "Cash for work" projects for 7,000 participants in Miragoâne and Palliant (Nippes departement, Haïti), in the presence of local authorities. The participants will work on watershed management, reforestation, construction and repair of community infrastructure and road maintenance.   In the photo: "Cash for work" projects in Palliant.

Lebanon, Hermel, 5 October 2017  The spill over from the ongoing war in Syria has exacerbated economic and social challenges in Lebanon, placing a strain on existing resources and already overstretched public services and infrastructure in host communities.   Through food for assets programmes, both vulnerable Lebanese and Syrian communities are engaged in the building or rehabilitation of infrastructures that can help them reduce the impact of climate change and strengthen livelihoods, making participating individuals, their families and communities more resilient to shocks.  In the photo: Women and men are involved in WFP’s food for assets programmes in Lebanon like this one in Hermel. Participants who are working on canal cleaning and rehabilitation receive a one off $105 payment per cycle plus $5 per day for transport costs.  Photo: WFP/Edward Johnson

I’m doing the training but it’s for my kids – I need to give them the best future possible.” Rosa, a Syrian refugee and mother of seven, is taking part in WFP’s Food for Training project in Tripoli, Lebanon. She’s learning about food hygiene, preparation and preservation techniques along with 23 other women from both Lebanon and Syria. The training is funded by Germany's BMZ.  Photo: WFP/Edward Johnson

Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Tshikapa, Kasai-Central, 23 August 2017  With the hunger crisis in the conflict-ridden Kasai region of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) rapidly deepening, 3.2 million people – one quarter of the population – do not have reliable access to a sufficient quantity of affordable, nutritious food.  In the worst-off communities, nine out of ten people are food insecure – one in two severely so.  Global Acute Malnutrition rates in children under 5 have reached 14 percent, well above the 10 percent emergency threshold.  WFP is providing full-ration food distributions (cereal, pulses, vegetable oil and salt) to priority families, identified as particularly vulnerable.

Haiti, Anse Rouge, 09 May 2017  In the commune of Anse Rouge, WFP implemented a Food For Assets (FFA) project to improve salt production methods and revitalize the salt production value chain. More than 5,000 people participated directly in the project. The goal of the project was to reduce the risk of disasters resulting from soil erosion and flashfloods, improve the livelihoods of vulnerable communities and organize producers in Self-Help Group associations. The project started in September 2016, but it was interrupted one month later when Hurricane Matthew hit Haiti in October 2016. The hurricane destroyed the majority of salt marshes. When the project resumed the participants therefore also worked on rebuilding the salt marshes destroyed by the hurricane. Salt is the only livelihood for many families in the commune of Anse Rouge which has a dry climate and significantly less rain than the rest of the country.
