SEADS: Standards for Supporting Crop-related Livelihoods in Emergencies


Millions of people around the world who are vulnerable to crises rely heavily on crop production to support their livelihoods. Currently, 40% of the global poor live in economies affected by fragility, conflict, and violence. That number is expected to rise to 67% in the next decade (World Bank 2021).

By protecting and rebuilding crop-based livelihoods before, during, and after a crisis, crop-related crisis response mitigates the impacts of a crisis by contributing to a sustainable food supply and potential sources of income for the very poor.

SEADS is a set of international principles and minimum standards that support humanitarian and development workers to design, implement, and evaluate crop-related crisis responses.
