FAO Sudan has hosted a 3-day Cash Learning Partnership (CaLP) training course in Khartoum on the basics of cash transfer programmes in agriculture and livestock. The participants included representatives from national ministries and NGOs. Cash transfers and vouchers are increasingly being used as a way of helping vulnerable people while stimulating local markets.
FAO also led a training seminar in Khartoum on rolling out Disaster Risk Management in the agriculture-based livelihood sector in Sudan. Thirty people including government line ministry staff took part in the two-day event. A technical network on DRM in the Food Security and Livelihoods cluster has now been established.
