Supporting Montserrat and St Helena to enhance welfare and development through improved environmental management.

Department for Environment, Food, and Rural Affairs

This programme is delivered by JNCC and aims to improve environmental management. This includes better management of water resources, fisheries and landscapes and to enhance economic security, welfare and development of local communities dependent on the natural environment for their livelihoods. This includes farmers dependent on scarce water resources and island communities where better fisheries management increases food supply and incomes. Landscape scale management enhances security of food and water supply and reduces vulnerability to natural disasters such as drought or storm associated flooding and coastal hurricane storm surge.

219133 WFP FY22 General Food Myanmar

World Vision UK

Rakhine State is the westernmost part of Myanmar and with a population of more than 3 million people. The area was previously affected by conflicts with a significant number of people who are food insecure. While agriculture is the main livelihood activity of the population, conflicts and internal displacements has resulted in low production of food. According to 2021 Humanitarian Needs Overview[1], total of 284,629 individuals in Northern Rakhine State are vulnerable to food insecurity. In the proposed project, World Vision Myanmar will implement food distribution and nutrition activities in Buthidaung and Maungdaw Townships of the Rakhine State. The project will distribute total of 8,436.600 MT of general food and 619.200 MT of supplementary food to 43,000 beneficiaries on monthly basis during 12 months period starting from 1st January 2022 till 31st December 2022. In addition to food distribution activities, nutrition promotion activities such as delivering nutrition related messages will also be implemented. World Vision Myanmar has been implementing food distribution activities in Buthidaung and Maungdaw Townships since 2017 and the proposed project will be the continuation of serving its current beneficiaries. Within these years, WVM has set up food management committee in its target villages contributing implementation of successful project activities. Total project 43000 beneficiaires

Annual Contribution to the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands

Department for Environment, Food, and Rural Affairs

This activity supports an annual contribution to the Ramsar Convention, or the Convention on Wetlands, which is an intergovernmental treaty that seeks to conserve wetlands and their resources. The mission of the Ramsar Convention explicitly conceives of the conservation and wise use of wetlands as a contribution towards achieving sustainable development throughout the world. Wetlands provide a range of vital ecosystem services; they deliver flood control, coastal protection, and climate change adaptation and mitigation functions, protecting the communities most at risk from floods, droughts and storm surges. They are also diverse habitats, which support biodiversity and are essential to the life cycles and migratory patterns of many species. Overall, wetlands provide food for more than three billion people worldwide and are a source of freshwater and livelihoods for over one billion people. The Ramsar Convention in pursuing the global wise use of wetlands makes a central contribution to long-term pro-poor growth and to protecting the livelihoods of the poorest. The Convention provides support to developing countries through the provision of small grants, advisory missions and funding for emergency action in threatened areas, targeted capacity building and training, and sharing of expertise from developed countries.

Do agricultural microplastics undermine food security and sustainable development in developing countries?

UK - Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS)

THE GLOBAL PROBLEM: The presence of large amounts of plastic in terrestrial, freshwater and marine ecosystems appears almost ubiquitous, with frequent reports of negative impacts of plastics on ecosystem health. This has led to the United Nations Environment Programme declaring plastic pollution as one of the top 10 global environmental problems. The problem of plastic pollution is particularly acute in low and middle-income countries (LMICs) where it is impairing the health and wellbeing of billions of the world's poorest and most vulnerable people. In addition, it is compromising our ability to deliver many of the UN's Sustainable Development Goals (SDG). While much research effort has been spent understanding the behaviour of microplastics in marine systems, the impact of plastics in terrestrial environments, and especially agricultural systems, remains poorly understood. This is surprising considering that 80% of plastics arriving in the oceans were produced, used, and often disposed of on land. It has also led to speculation that it is within terrestrial systems that microplastics might actually be of greatest concern. THE PLASTIC PARADOX IN LMICs: Over the last 50 years, many governments and overseas aid agencies have actively encouraged the use of plastics within agriculture to promote greater resource use efficiency and food security. The adoption of plastic mulch films in particular, has transformed the livelihoods of millions of smallholder farmers across the world, however, this has been achieved at a large environmental cost. Difficulties in removing plastic from fields, a lack of appreciation for its impact on agroecosystem health, and socioeconomic/practical barriers to its effective disposal have left a plastic pollution legacy that will last for many generations to come. There is therefore an urgent need to critically evaluate the environmental and human health risks posed by these legacy plastics and to devise effective ways and social structures to prevent further accumulation and to try and remediate plastic contaminated fields. TACKLING THE ISSUE: To address the problem and help deliver tangible solutions, we have brought together a multidisciplinary team of natural and social scientists from 5 contrasting LMICs (China, Egypt, India, Sri Lanka and Vietnam). We chose these 5 countries as this is where the problem of agricultural plastic pollution is most acute and because they are at different stages of tackling the problem. Together, these countries use 3 million tonnes of agricultural plastic film each year covering 25 million hectares of agricultural land. They also span a wide range of climates and possess a range of governance structures which will enable our outcomes to be readily translated to other similar LMICs. Consequently, the overall aim of our research is to quantify the risk that conventional macro-, micro- and nano-plastics pose to the long-term health of agricultural ecosystems. This information will be used to critically evaluate the likely impact of conventional agricultural plastic use on food security and rural livelihoods. In addition, we aim to identify practical, economic, socially acceptable and politically viable solutions to help remediate land contaminated with plastic and prevent further pollution from occurring through lasting behaviour and policy change. PROJECT LEGACY: Our fundamental approach will be to co-design context-specific, locally-owned interventions to reduce the plastic legacy, while still maintaining sustainable farming practices and livelihoods. It is vital that we generate legacy to ensure that the tools, technology, knowledge and partnerships we develop persist well beyond the project end-date and that the outcomes continue to spread to other LMICs. We have embedded legacy into the fabric of our project. For example we will upskill LMIC researchers, build research capital, create an information portal and design novel decision support tools.

Reducing the Impact of Poverty on Maternal and Child Health by Improving Food Security and Access to Basic Health Services for 18,000 people in the Karnali Region of Western Nepal

PHASE Worldwide

This project will contribute to reducing maternal and child deaths within a total population of 18,000 living in poverty in the Karnali Region, West Nepal. Poor health is linked to malnutrition and lack of access to health services; we will improve access to nutritious foods and basic health services, specifically for mothers and children (but also everyone else in the community). Support to government health services, health education and work with women’s groups will ensure people have access to and use health services appropriately and attend early with treatable illness; preventative services will help reduce illness. Food security will be improved through seed and stock distribution, access to better stud goats and training for male and female farmers in animal fodder production, soil management, irrigation methods and vegetable / vegetable seed production. ;
