Complementary Project for Enhancing Food Security in the North of Aleppo Governorate – Phase IV

According the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), an individual requires 275 grams of flour daily (8.25 kilograms every month) to satisfy their wheat needs. In light of this information and the success of the first three phases of the project, “Complementary Project for Enhancing Food Security in the North of Aleppo Governorate”, the next phase, “Complementary Project for Enhancing Food Security in the North of Aleppo Governorate – Phase IV”, focuses on replenishing soft wheat stocks and avoiding flour supply shortages for local bakeries. To meet this need for wheat and flour, the implementing entity (IE) will supply 10,000 metric tons (MT) of soft wheat to targeted communities in Northern Aleppo.

Under this project, the SRTF proposes the procurement and delivery of the following:

  1. 10,000 MT of soft wheat;
  2. 150,000 Polypropylene flour sacks;
  3. 200 MT of salt for bread baking;
  4. 100 MT of yeast for bread baking; and
  5. Polyethylene sheets
  6. Agro-chemicals (insecticide and rodenticide)

This project is expected to:

  • Contribute to sustained availability of flour for the private sector and SRTF-supported bakeries;
  • Increase the availability of bread and stabilize bread prices, particularly in areas with large populations of internally displaced people (IDPs); and
  • Enhance the IE’s ability to respond to and address the needs of the community, as well as improve food security for the Syrian people.

This project has a budget of EUR 3.5 million and is expected to last 18 months, including a six-month monitoring and evaluation period. An estimated 270,000 beneficiaries are expected to benefit every month for six months from the availability of bread at affordable and stabilized prices.
