Vanuatu - 3.3 Additional Service Providers

Food and Additional Suppliers 

Increasing local food production can assist with emergency response in Vanuatu and this would require creating mechanisms to ensure that communities have access to sufficient food immediately after a disaster hits. Following Tropical Cyclone Harold in 2020, three food baskets were established: Sara food basket in North Pentecost, Namaram food basket and Malolo food basket in South Pentecost. The Malolo food basket has since assisted a lot of people in Penama Province during the Manaro volcano ash fall and other natural disasters. Following the twin cyclones Judy and Kevin in March 2023, 300 Vanuatu Golden Hybrid yams were ready for harvest from the Sara food basket which greatly assisted communities in Penama Province.
