Namibia Red Cross’ integrated food security intervention

The Namibia Red Cross introduced an integrated food security project in 2011 in order to address food availability and access as well as malnutrition and poverty within its programme areas. This was implemented as part of the National Society’s broader disaster management programme in partnership with government ministries and other international and local organizations. The integrated food security project targeted the Khomas, Caprivi and Ohangwena regions. This case study presents the integrated food security project which aims to strengthen the resilience of vulnerable communities and households from the risk of food insecurity. Published in 2012.
