The report features an analysis of the external financing to the food sectors to all 55 countries and territories with food crises as identified by the 2021 Global Report on Food Crises. It presents a quantitative and neutral analysis of trends of the humanitarian and development assistance to food sectors globally, regionally, and nationally between 2016 and 2020 alongside data on acute food insecurity.  It contains: a global overview of external financing flows to all 55 countries and territories with food crises; the regional perspective; and an in-depth analysis of countries that comprise the majority of the global population in acute food insecurity. The report was developed by the Technical Support Unit (TSU) of the Global Network Against Food Crises in collaboration with Development Initiatives. The development of the report was made possible through the financial contribution of the European Union.

September update of the 2021 Global Report on Food Crises

13/10/2021 -

The September update of the 2021 Global Report on Food Crises (GRFC) reports on the magnitude and severity of acute food insecurity in 2021 in countries that qualified as food crises in 2020 in the GRFC 2021. Using data available by 10 September 2021, this update highlights the highest number of people in Crisis or worse (IPC/CH Phase 3 or above) or equivalent in 2021. In many countries, the numbers were already higher than in 2020 as a result of the impacts of prolonged or intensifying conflict/ insecurity, economic shocks – including the ongoing effects of the COVID-19 pandemic – weather extremes, natural disasters or a combination of these drivers. The GRFC and its updates are an initiative of the Global Network Against Food Crises that is coordinated by the Food Security Information Network (FSIN) and funded by the generous financial contributions of the European Union and USAID.

2021 Global Report on Food Crises - Regional Focus on the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) Member States

21/09/2021 -

This is the third edition of the Regional Report on Food Crises for East and Central Africa, a joint analysis led by the Food Security Information Network (FSIN), under the Global Network Against Food Crises, that provides a comprehensive regional picture of the food security and nutritional situation in the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) Member States. This edition of the report indicates that the number of food insecure people (IPC Phase 3+) in the IGAD region has steadily increased from 26.8 million in 2017, to 27 million in 2018, 27.6 million in 2019 (excluding Djibouti), and up to 31.4 million in 2020. An estimated 31.4 million people across the IGAD region were classified in crisis or worse (IPC Phase 3+) levels of acute food insecurity in 2020. This figure represents 20% of the global 155 million people that faced food insecurity and required urgent action in 2020. 2021 projections point to a grimmer situation, where between 36.7 to 37.2 million people will likely face high levels of acute food insecurity (IPC Phase 3 or above), largely due to conflict, weather extremes, and persistent economic shocks (including the socio-economic repercussions of COVID-19).
