Emergency Supplementary Feeding Programmes

Research reports

Guidelines on emergency supplementary feeding programmes (SFPs) have generally been written with the classical refugee camp situation in mind, yet an increasing number of emergencies involve non-refugee populations. This review is based on an evaluation of 14 emergency SFPs implemented in Eastern and Southern Africa between 1989-93. These programmes served different non-refugee populations, including refugee-impacted communities in Malawi and conflict-affected groups in southern Somalia. It examines the appropriateness of current guidelines for different emergency contexts and proposes situation specific approaches to programme design and implementation
