Improving Smallholders’ Food Security and Resilience to Climate Change in Burkina Faso: The Building Resilience and Adaptation to Climate Extremes and Disasters Programme (BRACED) (AVE-Study 19/2019)
This study seeks to analyse the perceived impacts on food security and poverty reduction of the Building Resilience and Adaptation to Climate Extremes and Disasters (BRACED) programme in Burkina Faso. Besides positive impacts on people’s food security and poverty reduction, the beneficiaries also emphasised the social effects of the project activities, which led to an improvement of the social cohesion, mutual help and support in the villages.
Promotion of Agropastoralism. Combating poverty and hunger through integrated rural development in Samburu, Kenya (AVE-Study 12b/2019)
In times of perennial droughts, it becomes increasingly difficult for (semi)nomadic pastoralists in Kenya to find enough fodder for their animals. As response to this situation, World Vision Kenya implemented a multisectoral project that promoted crop farming and improved livestock, among others. The project helped people to diversify their livelihoods and increase food production, which made important contributions to their food security.
Land Allocation for the Poorest: Investigations into Social Land Concessions in Cambodia (AVE-Study 7b/2018)
Bliss, Frank / Hennecke, Rosa / Schell, Oliver
How can we improve the food security of land less households? The Improving Livelihoods and Food Security Project (ILF) supports approximately 7,000 poor households, which receive land for utilisation from the Cambodian government free of charge. Our study shows how people who cultivate little or no land so far, manage to achieve food security and to acquire a land title after only five years with the assistance of ILF.
Home-Grown School Feeding as a “Good Practice” for Poverty Alleviation and Nutrition Security in Cambodia (AVE-Studie 4/2017)
Pupils from approx. 1200 primary schools in Cambodia receive a daily hot meal as part of a school feeding program supported by the United Nations World Food Program (WFP). 85 of these schools converted from centralized procurement to “home-grown” by mid-2017. This means all necessary food is produced locally at the school sites. The INEF study shows that the effects are very positive, not only in terms of children and their school performance, but also on local added value and enhanced engagement of the involved stakeholders such as teachers, parents and local administration.
