The CERF funding provided the critical resources for UN agencies and implementing partners to initiate an immediate response to the drought 2019/2020, which affected the food security and livelihoods of 2.3 million people in Zambia. CERF funding enabled a multisectoral response in five sectors: food security, nutrition, education, protection and WASH and acted as a catalyst in engaging donors to contribute an additional $20million towards the response.
