Millions are living on the edge of emergency. The number of people living on the edge of emergency has rocketed to 220 million. The world's poorest are paying a high price for the international aid system's failure to address factors keeping them in chronic poverty. With food price rises adding to the problem many people just don’t have enough to eat. Most of them live on the edge because we keep them there. Money raised to respond to emergencies often leaves them worse off than they were before. CARE is demanding that we put a stop to this by calling for a dramatic overhaul of the system which is keeping them trapped.

Our report calls on the international community to give higher priority to recovery and prevention programmes like seed distribution and improved veterinary services so that families can pull themselves back from the edge and be in a stronger position to fight off the next emergency themselves.

This study was commissioned by the Food and Agricultural Organisation (FAO), Save the Children UK, Save the Children US and CARE International, hereafter referred to as the Core Group.

The study also sought to identify mechanisms to initiate more timely and appropriate interventions to protect and support pastoral livelihoods. The study has identified mechanisms, systems, capacities and institutions which need to be strengthened in order to trigger more timely and appropriate livelihood-based responses to drought. The study also explored donor interest in resourcing these changes.
