Erratic weather has damaged crop production in Syria.
Roughly a million Syrians are returning to their homes as security has improved. However, many are still reliant on aid as their homes are destroyed and their livelihoods are lost. Wheat crop is the lowest it has been in nearly three decades, resulting in the cost of wheat increasing.
“It is likely that everyone in Syria will, in some way, be affected by the abysmal wheat crop” said a WFP spokesperson
Six million people in Syria are food-insecure and thirteen million are dependent on humanitarian assistance. The UN agency’s Executive Director, David Beasley, traveled to Lebanon to visit with the 700,000 Syrian refugees who are dependent on World Food Program food assistance.
“Syrians have endured unspeakable hardship over the last seven years of conflict. World Food Program is working every day to help the most critically affected families put food on the table, work that is a basis for building peace,” said WFP
Between now and March 2019, the UN agency needs $136 million for Syria operations. World Food Program is currently supporting food productions and income generation projects in areas that are secure with functioning markets.
