Title: The impact of disasters on agriculture and food security
Authors: Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations
Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations
Issue Date: 2015
Publisher: Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations
Abstract: The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) carried out the present study to help fill existing knowledge gaps about the nature and magnitude of disaster impacts triggered by natural hazards on the agriculture sector and subsectors (crops, livestock, fisheries and forestry) in developing countries. This study seeks to provide systematized data, analysis and information, while increasing awareness about the urgent need to enhance national and international commitment and budget allocations to risk reduction for the sector, including improving data collection and monitoring systems on sector-specific damage and losses. The ultimate goal is to inform the implementation and monitoring of the three key international agendas of 2015, which recognize resilience as a fundamental ingredient for their achievement: the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), specifically Goal 2; the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction 2015 2030; and the Universal Climate Change Agreement that is expected under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.
