Rural poor heavily rely on their local environments to provide necessities like water, food and energy. Thus, these vital resources provide the backbone of many rural livelihoods and their stability is key to securing the wellbeing of their entire communities.  Food insecurity interrupts market access, trade and food supply, reduces income, deplete savings and erode livelihoods. Economic crises such as soaring food prices reduce real income, force the poor to sell their assets, decrease food consumption, and reduce their dietary diversity and access to safe and quality food. Disasters create poverty traps that increase the prevalence of food insecurity and malnutrition.

This course will equip you with knowledge on protecting people’s livelihoods from shocks, and strengthening their capacity to absorb the impact of, and recover from, disruptive events.
