FAO-WFP Early Warning Analysis of Acute Food Insecurity
A joint FAO-WFP analysis of food insecurity hotspots as the coronavirus crisis unfolds

17/07/2020 - This joint FAO-WFP early warning analysis highlights countries that are at risk of significant food security deterioration, and in particular acute hunger and associated malnutrition. The first edition shows that people in some 25 countries are set to face devasting levels of hunger in coming months due to the fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic. While the greatest concentration of need is in Africa, countries in Latin America and the Caribbean, and in the Middle East and Asia – including middle-income countries - are also being ravaged by crippling levels of food insecurity. This report is part of a series of analytical products produced under the Global Network Against Food Crises initiative to enhance and coordinate the generation and sharing of evidence‑based information and analysis for preventing and addressing food crises.
