FOOD SECURITY AND LIVELIHOOD

SADO Emergency Responses

Natural disasters like chronic droughts, reoccurring flooding, trends of climate change, human displacement, and armed conflicts have been adversely affecting the poor people’s access to basic needs (food, shelter, water, etc.) and forced them to be dependent on humanitarian assistance. Safe and constant access to basic needs including food increases the sense of security and allows people to live with dignity and self-possession.

SADO provides different aspects of livelihood support such as emergency food/voucher, cash transfers (UCT/CCT) to prevent loss of human life and assets, training and capacity development in agricultural community through good agricultural practices, providing agricultural inputs like variety seeds and agricultural tools, enhancing production through supporting entrepreneurships and business cooperatives, facilitating access to markets and rehabilitation of local food and market systems as livelihood strategies to promote, protect, recover and strengthen individuals’ and households’ abilities to earn a living and become resilient for shocks.
In addition, SADO encourage and support capital assets and economic recovery initiatives for effective livelihood activities including business/ entrepreneurship training, business grants, vocational life-skills and literacy training, establishment of saving and enterprise groups.
SADO annually supports an average of between 20,000 and 30,000 households (120,000 and 180,000 people) with these different livelihood interventions in Somalia.
