How can agriculture and natural resource management (NRM) programming lead to more productive and resilient food systems and ecosystems in fragile contexts? What approaches have humanitarians used to incorporate these activities and what support do they need to enhance that work?

In 2019, the Bureau for Humanitarian Assistance (BHA)- funded Strengthening Capacity in Agriculture, Livelihoods and Environment (SCALE) Award conducted a survey and a series of interviews with emergency program implementers to answer these questions. This document summarizes the review findings and highlights practical steps for strengthening agriculture and NRM programming in places affected by conflict, weak institutions, volatile markets, and climate-related shocks.
