In close cooperation with its sister societies the GRC ensures short and medium term food supplies for the affected parts of the population.

UNICEF works, amongst others, together with the World Food Programme to implement a programme ensuring increased resilience in nutrition and health for children and mothers in Karamoja, specifically through supporting district health systems and scaling up community based nutrition. In addition, UNICEF continues to provide support to district and communities for increased access to safe water and sanitation facilities.

In connecting leadership from previously isolated sectors and academic fields, EAT is guided by the core working hypothesis that productive food systems, global health, and a sustainable environment are all prerequisites for human development.
