To re-establish food production and create a farming system that provides for better food security and assurances for sustained production and income, the FAO aims to build upon its experiences over the past years in their DRR/M programmes and to provide practical guidance in the introduction of effective techniques and technologies that can assist hazard prone communities to overcome recurrent threats.

The introduction of appropriate agricultural water management techniques, including irrigation, would provide an attractive way to rapidly re-establish production and income, and to increase significantly the resilience of the local population to overcome subsequent emergencies.
