The United States Agency for International Development’s (USAID's) Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance (BHA) seeks to improve the impact of emergency-funded agricultural activities on nutritional status, especially that of women and young children. USAID Advancing Nutrition explored where nutrition-sensitive agriculture activities are appropriate in emergency contexts and how they can be designed to improve nutrition outcomes. To inform these recommendations, USAID Advancing Nutrition conducted research with two BHA-funded activities. One activity is the Emergency Livelihood Response Programme in South Sudan, which is implemented by the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations. This research report describes the quantitative and qualitative findings for the South Sudan component of the work that was performed under this activity in collaboration with the FAO.
