Explanation of number of beneficiaries targeted

Burkina Faso relies predominantly on its agricultural economy, based primarily on farming and animal breeding and thus vulnerable to climate conditions and to fluctuations of the international prices of raw materials. The sporadic and geographically unbalanced rainfalls during the 2011 agricultural season, worsened by the continuous trend of high food prices as well as the important influx of Malian refugees, has led to very poor food security indicators (acute malnutrition with a prevalence rate of nearly 30%), livestock feeding difficulties and under nutrition. Rural farmers, particularly those that are vulnerable, have attempted to sustain their families by selling their seeds and livestock. Although the food security pressures are likely to ease following a reasonable 2012 raining season, the impact of high food prices and the past year’s insufficient and imbalanced agricultural production rates have led to a tenuous living situation for many vulnerable households’ members (starting with children). This situation affects especially the poorest households, many of them monoparental households with women as heads of families, and the most vulnerable people, especially children and women. As for the arable crops, the final figures on the 2012 harvest estimates will be published during the first quarter of 2013. The new figures will be reflected in the mid-year review of this response plan and the targeted beneficiaries of 70,310 people will be adjusted accordingly.



How the sector response plan will contribute to the strategic objectives

Sector response programme in Burkina Faso aims to integrate a regional approach focused on the livelihoods of vulnerable populations and disaster risk reduction and management so as to form a sustainable support strategy for improving the resilience of people. Resilience is a key strategic concept for the Agricultural Sector. The ability to prevent disasters and crises or to anticipate, absorb, accommodate or recover from disaster impact in a timely, efficient and sustainable manner is the way to strengthen the vulnerable Sahelian population in a context high food prices and past year’s insufficient and imbalanced agricultural production rates that had led to a tenuous living situation. This includes protecting, restoring and improving structures and functions of food and agricultural systems under threat through the support to (i) crop farmers (off-season vegetable production), (ii) cattle farmers, including improved animal health.



Sector objectives and output targets

Strategic objective #1

Provide humanitarian aid to communities suffering from or threatened by food insecurity while capitalizing on opportunities in the emergency response to foster the self-reliance and resilience capacity of affected population and rebuild livelihoods for implementing time-critical early recovery activities.




Sector objective #1
Restore, protect and strengthen the livelihoods of affected or potentially food-insecure population by maintaining agriculture / livestock productivity (including for Malian refuges) and increase food availability for nutrition security.



Output Indicator

2013 target

Vegetable production for consumption increased in local markets with a positive impact on food prices.

30 to 50% of increased production/beneficiary.

Number of animals with improved nutritional and health status.

429,200

Percentage in improvement of productive and earning capacities.

30%


Sector objective #2

Prevent an increase in malnutrition rates by assisting households at risk in order to save children, pregnant and nursing womens’ lives.



Output Indicator

2013 target

Number of vulnerable households that have improved their nutritional status, dietary intake and earnings, as well as their knowledge in vegetable production.

14,600

Number of rural households that have improved their preparedness and resilience to climatic hazards.

103,000


Sector objective #3

Improve food security coordination at sector level with the objective to develop food security information gathering system and therefore target effective needy areas.



Output Indicator

2013 target

Time between the outbreak of crises and the beginning of the response.

4 weeks if financing available.

Number of cases of geographical overlapping.

1 (eventually 0).

Top-priority actions, beneficiaries, and locations

Protect agriculturebased livelihoods of food-insecure vulnerable farmers through the support to produce vegetables for their self-consumption, the diversification of their diets, to generate revenues and to have a positive impact on food prices and therefore improve their resilience capacity to shocks.

Animals constitute an important financial asset for pastoralists providing both food and income. Considering the present vulnerability of the Sahelian cattle farmers , there is a need to support livestock productivity to restore their livelihoods and build their resilience.

How the sector response plan will contribute to the strategic objectives

During 2012, the Nutrition Sector proved high capacities of coordination to respond to the food and nutrition crisis, ensuring harmonisation of all intervention of the different actors (UN agencies, NGOs, CSOs), avoiding duplication of actions and preventing wasting of funds. All interventions were implemented in support to the national health system and through existing community structures. This strategy allowed attending to 100% of SAM caseload and 100% of MAM target (up to September 2012).

In 2013, good coordination of all actors will still be ensured by the Nutrition sector lead, UNICEF, together with ACF (co-lead), WHO, FAO, WFP and ECHO. Coordination and planning ahead for 2013 already started within the Nutrition Sector, in order to ensure continuity and efficiency in SAM and MAM management. In 2013, 100,000 SAM children and 305,000 MAM children will be targeted. This represents a challenge concerning fundraising and coordination, which the Nutrition Sector is ready to take on. Monitoring and evaluation will be ensured through the recently established monthly reporting system on SAM and MAM management, as well as through the national nutrition survey (SMART).
