Linking emergency aid to food and nutrition security, Avoiding pitfalls of help-indcued dependency

  There has been a substantial increase in the number and impact of natural disasters such as earth quake of Nepal April 2015. But also man-made crisis and disasters are increasing and many conflicts have remained unresolved. Emergency or food aid, although necessary, is often criticised as a donor driven response, creating dependency in the short term, and undermining initiatives for local agricultural development in the longer term. Usually, only a few incentives exists to encourage people to build a better life and prevent them from falling back into avoidable situations where they need assistance again.
