Food security and livelihoods

Bothoor ALkhaer Relief and Development Organization seeks to guarantee the right of every person to a standard of living appropriate to his health and well-being. This includes the right to food and livelihood protection

Food security depends on four basic pillars:

.Availability of diverse and nutritious foods.
.Physical, economic and social access to nutritious foods.
.Adequate use of nutrients consumed to maintain proper nutritional health.
. Promoting the stability of the foundations and systems on which humans depend over time.

Our expertise is in livelihoods and food security

We provide food assistance to prevent loss of life and to contribute to the rehabilitation of local food systems and markets. We promote livelihood strategies that protect, restore and enhance the capabilities of individuals and families to earn a living. To prevent recurrent displacement, we support participation in social and economic opportunities that strengthen the adaptive capacity of systems, individuals, families and communities affected by displacement.

We follow the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) definition of food security:

“Food security is achieved when all people, at all times, have physical, social and economic access to sufficient, safe and nutritious food that meets their nutritional needs and food preferences for an active and healthy life. In both emergencies and protracted crises, we analyze the context and situation of livelihood vulnerability. This analysis enables us to better understand vulnerabilities, needs and preferences, which is essential for developing integrated and comprehensive responses that contribute to durable solutions. Livelihood interventions must be implemented in partnership with other sectors.

Our work in livelihoods and food security focuses on the following areas:

. Household and livelihood vulnerability analysis
. Emergency food aid
. Create local assets that reduce food insecurity and build livelihood opportunities
. School meals and gardening
. Nutritious food production systems
. Integrated management of natural resources
. Food infrastructure systems
. Employment, income generation and/or diversification
. Facilitating credit and financing
. Upstream business and value chain development
. Integrated risk reduction



We work in three areas to enable livelihoods that support durable solutions:

. Meeting basic needs/providing livelihood
Protect and stabilize affected families against further impacts of risks and crises by ensuring access to adequate and appropriate nutritious food. Providing other basic subsistence needs needed for survival.

. Protecting livelihoods
Support affected households and communities in protecting households and livelihood systems, avoiding erosion of productive assets, and supporting households and communities in restoring productive assets.

. Enhancing livelihoods
Strengthening family and community capacity to manage risks and shocks and benefit from their adaptive, financial and human capacities. Investing in durable solutions to improve economic and social well-being and dignity.

An economic project for cotton farmers in Iraq

In light of the continuing wars, climate change, pandemics and natural disasters - multiple crises are testing our ability to withstand. In Iraq, the cultivation of cotton as an industrial agricultural crop occupies great importance in the global economy and Iraq in particular, as it plays an active role in the process of foreign trade, as it is considered one of the main fiber crops and is used in the manufacture of various tissues, cellulose paper and some chemical compounds. Edible oil is also extracted from its seeds and its remains are used as feed. Cotton cultivation is famous in Iraq, and there was a large amount of this crop. Join us to support this important sector in Iraq by financing one of the most important projects.
