Food Assistance to Drought-Affected Household in the Logone and Chari Division and Nutritionally Vulnerable Groups in the Far North Region of Cameroon

This Operation has been modified as per Budget Revision 3 (see below).

The Government of Cameroon has declared an emergency situation in the Far North region of the country due to a major drop in cereal production following poor rainfall. A crop and food supply assessment mission by Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development and WFP in the two northern regions of Cameroon concluded that the cereal harvest in the Far North region is significantly below the previous years’ production, resulting in a 50,000 mt deficit. Over 400,000 people in the Logone and Chari division are affected by the decrease in food production, half of whom require immediate food assistance.
