IPC Map of Afghanistan - Projection November 2014/March 2015

Dec 2014
The designations employed and the presentation of material in the map do not imply the expression of any opinion whatsoever on the part of FAO concerning the legal or constitutional status of any country, territory or sea area, or concerning the delimitation of frontiers.

High food insecurity is projected for the period from November 2014 to March 2015 in Aghanistan. The situation is expected to deteriorate as a result of severe winter conditions, heavy snow and the blockage of roads in certain provinces. Market prices are expected to increase, as per the seasonal pattern, while food availability will remain an issue.

The high rate of livelihood change and limited job opportunities will result in higher rate of food insecurity. Bamyan and Daykundi, Nooristan and Badghis provinces are expected to shift from Phase 3 to 4 because of multiple issues mentioned above. Badghis is facing a crop failure this year and thus food insecurity will further increase in winter with lower availability and poor access. Ghazni province is expected to deteriorate from Phase 2 to 3. While other provinces should remain in the same phase, a higher proportion of the total population will possibly enter in to a worse phase.
