This policy document presents the Disaster Risk Reduction for Food and Nutrition Security Framework Programme of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). The Framework Programme aims to provide strategic direction to the implementation of disaster risk reduction measures in member countries across the agricultural-related sectors — in line with the Hyogo Framework for Action and its five priorities for action. In addition, it promotes an inter-disciplinary and programmatic approach to disaster risk reduction for food and nutrition security, by integrating the agriculture, livestock, fisheries, forestry and natural resource management sectors, to respond to the diverse livelihoods of small-scale farmers and to the complex set of factors which contribute to disaster risks. It includes a specific chapter on disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation.
