Hunger Hotspots - FAO-WFP early warnings on acute food insecurity │June to September 2022 outlook

06/06/2022 -

The 6th edition of the Hunger Hotspots report provides the results of a joint FAO-WFP early warning analysis of acute food insecurity hotspots, highlighting countries that are at risk of significant food security deterioration for the outlook period June to September 2022. According to the report, acute food insecurity is likely to deteriorate further in 20 countries or situations (including two regional clusters) – called hunger hotspots – during the outlook period from June to September 2022. In six of these – Afghanistan, Ethiopia, Nigeria, Somalia, South Sudan, and Yemen – humanitarian action is critical to prevent starvation and death. Moreover, an all-time high of up to 49 million people in 46 countries could be at risk of falling into famine or famine-like conditions, unless they receive immediate life and livelihoods-saving assistance. This includes 750 000 people already in Catastrophe (IPC/CH Phase 5).

This represents an increase of nearly 40 million people compared to the previous high reached in 2020 (reported in the GRFC 2021).The six edition of the Global Report on Food Crises is the product of a concerted effort among numerous members of the international humanitarian and development community to share data, analysis and global food security expertise.
