About FSUP

With a budget of 43.50 million Euro, Food Security for Ultra Poor Programme (FSUP) is being implemented by four International Development Agencies - Islamic Relief Worldwide, CARE, WFP and ICCO in association with 15 national NGOs over the period from January 2009 to 31December 2013.





Objectives and Target Groups

The main objective of FSUP is to contribute to the reduction of extreme poverty and food insecurity of the most vulnerable women and their dependents. This will be achieved using a combination of tested and innovative approaches, including formation of self-help groups, development of income generating activities, improved awareness and practices in the area of nutrition, sanitation, civil rights and access to services, and disaster preparedness FSUP is targeting 135,000 Rural ultra poor households located in 8 of the most vulnerable and disaster prone districts of North Bangladesh, including Rangpur, Gaibandha, Bogra, Siraganj, Pabna, Netrakona, Sunamganj and Kishoreganj.





Programme Coordination Unit

Comprising 4 separate sub-projects and their implementing partners and with the wide geographical coverage described above, coordination and monitoring of the FSUP is a complex operational challenge for the EU. In order to meet this challenge and to maximize the effectiveness, impact and sustainability of FSUP, a Programme Coordination Unit (PCU) has been established in Dhaka. The PCUs main functions are to coordinate, monitor and support the activities of the implementing partners, and to assist in the development and dissemination of communication materials for EU visibility. It is staffed by a small team, including a Coordinator, two Monitoring Specialists, MIS Finance and Visibility Specialists, and administrative persons.
