6 August 2010, Patuakhali - A beneficiary who received livestock through the Emergency Restoration of Livelihoods of Impoverished Households project standing in front of her home. FAO Project: OSRO/BGD/801/SPA - Emergency Restoration of Livelihoods of Impoverished Households Living on Embankments and Affected by Cyclone Sidr. The overall objective of the Project is to make a significant contribution to the GoB's livelihood protection and rehabilitation programme in the cyclone-affected areas through the replacement of assets lost or damaged by Cyclone Sidr. The anticipated impact of this will be a reduction in the long-term vulnerability and enhanced protection of livelihoods of the poorest and most vulnerable households (i.e. the landless families residing on the embankments of rivers and canals) through the restoration of fisheries and small livestock production.
