Towards durable solutions: The transformative power of agriculture in refugee settings.

Forced displacement has reached a scale not seen since records began, and two in three refugees are live in a long-term displacement situation.

Traditional responses to forced displacement crises, which are based on provision of emergency aid for prolonged periods of time, do not meaningfully build refugee’s long-term resilience and self-reliance. However, refugees have frequently shared that they do not want to be dependent on humanitarian assistance.

FAO believes that agriculture can transform the lives of forcibly displaced people, that it can build their resilience to climate change, their self-reliance to dictate their own futures, and contribute to local peace.

This video shares the stories of the refugees and host communities in Uganda and Kenya that the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) works with. It explores FAO’s resilience-building work with refugees, and the power of agricultural livelihood to achieve durable solutions to forced displacement.
