Resilient Livelihoods Course

Disasters and food insecurity are directly interconnected. They interrupt agricultural production activities, market access, trade, and food supply while reducing income and savings and eroding livelihoods. Drought, plant pests and diseases, animal diseases and food contamination have a direct economic impact; they reduce farm production adversely affect prices, trade, and market access and by extension, contributing to reduced incomes and unemployment. Disasters create a poverty trap and increase the prevalence of food insecurity and malnutrition. Disaster risk reduction is about protecting people’s livelihoods from shocks, and strengthening their capacity to absorb the impact of, and recover from, disruptive events. It is a necessary a major ingredient of food and nutrition security. Disaster risk reduction creates a multiplier effect that accelerates the achievement of the Millennium Development Goal 1: the eradication of extreme poverty and hunger.
