30/07/2021 -

The August to November edition of the Hunger Hotspots report provides the results of a joint FAO-WFP early warning analysis of acute food insecurity hotspots, highlights countries that are at risk of significant food security deterioration, and in particular acute hunger and associated malnutrition. The analysis takes into account all major drivers of food insecurity. It provides a forward-looking perspective, outlining the likely evolution of impacts over the next four month or so months aiming to inform urgent action to safeguard food security of the most vulnerable communities in these locations.

South Sudan - Financing Flows and Food Crises
Country analysis of external financing and domestic public resources to food security, agriculture and nutrition (2016-2019)

30/06/2021 -

Since the beginning of the civil conflict in 2013, the number of acutely food-insecure people in South Sudan has risen steadily. Only massive multi-sector life- and livelihood-saving assistance was able to contain the escalation of the Famine which was declared in parts of South Sudan on February 20, 2017. Ongoing conflict and insecurity, subsequent displacement and persisting macroeconomic crisis are the main drivers of food insecurity in the country. COVID-19 restrictive measures, meanwhile, exacerbated pre-existing vulnerabilities and further constrained food availability and access. From 2016 to 2018, external financing to food sectors has increased by around 30 percent. In 2019, however, international humanitarian assistance to food sectors recorded the first decline in four years, a sign that assistance was not following the increasing trend in acute food insecurity the same year.

Yemen - Financing Flows and Food Crises
Country analysis of external financing and domestic public resources to food security, agriculture and nutrition (2016-2019)

Since 2015, protracted conflict has driven millions of people in Yemen into hunger and made the country one of the worst humanitarian crises in the world. More than half of the population experienced acute food insecurity between 2016 and 2019, an alarmingly high share, as the ongoing conflict drove economic decline and disrupted livelihoods. Yemen has seen sustained humanitarian support over this four-year period, to the tune of more than USD 5.3 billion. While humanitarian assistance is crucial to address rising levels of hunger and malnutrition, foodrelated development assistance is equally required and needs to be increased to address the structural causes of hunger, reduce needs over time and ensure emergency and longer-term investments can complement each other in ways that strengthen resilience and early recovery.
