Allocation Story

29 August 2013: Following a poor cashew harvest in 2013, the food security and nutrition situation in Guinea-Bissau has significantly deteriorated. Food insecurity levels have increased from 5 per cent in 2011 to 16 per cent in 2013 in the most-affected regions of Quinara, Oio, Biombo and Bijagos.

In response, the Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF) has released US$3,166,826 to three United Nations agencies. The allocations are expected to benefit 89,445 people in Quinara, Bolama Bijagos, Bafata, Gabu, Bissa, Cacheu, Biombo and Oio regions.
