In response to the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on food security in Guinea, WFP provided food and nutritional assistance to 20,000 vulnerable households through the RESIGUI project, funded by the European Union (EU) to the tune of 8 million euros.
In line with the 'humanitarian-development nexus', the RESIGUI project has been structured around three main lines of action:
- Emergency food and nutritional assistance through unconditional cash transfers to 20,000 households and the provision of nutritional supplements to pregnant and lactating women and girls and children under five to prevent global acute malnutrition. This assistance was accompanied by awareness-raising on good nutritional practices based on the consumption of local foods to improve the dietary diversity of households.
- A recovery phase which consisted of conditional cash transfers for the creation of community productive assets (FFA) (agricultural developments, construction of storage warehouses, rehabilitation of rural roads)
- A resilience building phase for communities developing more inclusive, ecological and sustainable climate-smart agricultural practices, support to production, processing and market access.
Under this contract, WFP is required to publish grants and contracts over 15,000 euros funded by the European Union contribution and this page contains a list of these contracts.
