Through the Pro-resilience Action(PROACT), the EU is engaged in reducing food insecurity in a timely manner, helping the most vulnerable groups recover from crises and facilitating the phasing out of humanitarian assistance and build long-term food and nutrition security (FNS).
ProACT intervention is developed around two main objectives:
- Respond to major post-food crises scenarios promoting structural and resilient actions aiming at improving the capacity to prepare for, to withstand and to bounce back after shocks or stressors.
- Build Capacity of public institutions and private organizations to respond to food crises and capitalize on food crises prevention experiences by investing in resilience building good practices, such as the AGIR and SHARE initiatives.
70% of PROACT actions are developed in non-conflict areas while 30% are in conflict zones. In conflict areas, the main targets of the poject are directly displaced persons. PROACT intervenes in the most critical countries such as in Yemen, Mali, Syria, Niger, Nigeria, Burundi, Cameroon, Somalia, Sudan and South Sudan.
