CRISES TOUCHANT LA FILIERE ALIMENTAIRE

Publications

FAO assesses that globally 40 countries, of which 31 in Africa, continue to be in need of external assistance for food. The impact of conflicts continues to be the main cause of the high level of severe food insecurity. Weather-induced production declines have also negatively impacted food availability.

 
This publication provides reference and general guidance for countries, specifically policy makers and official, to draft and implement policies on antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and antimicrobial use (AMU) for food animal production within a One health Approach. It offers practical guide for countries to systematically identify, assess and strengthen AMR and AMU policies.

This report is part of FAO’s efforts to systematically link early warnings to anticipatory actions. By providing specific early action recommendations for each country, the report aims to prompt FAO and partners to proactively mitigate and/or prevent disasters before they start to adversely impact food security.
In order of intensity, for the period October to December 2018, the high risk section includes:
• Yemen
• Democratic Republic of the Congo
• South Sudan
• Afghanistan
• Bangladesh and Myanmar
• Syrian Arab Republic
• El Niño
• Fall armyworm

COUNTRIES REQUIRING EXTERNAL ASSISTANCE FOR FOOD
FAO assesses that globally 39 countries continue to be in need of external assistance for food. Persisting conflicts are the dominant factor driving the high level of severe food insecurity, as well as climate-related shocks which have also adversely impacted food availability and access, according to the new edition of the quarterly Crop Prospects and Food Situation report issued today.

The Early Warning Early Action (EWEA) report on food security and agriculture is developed by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). It provides a quarterly forward-looking analysis of major disaster risks to food security and agriculture, specifically highlighting:
• potential new emergencies resulting from imminent disaster threats
• new developments in countries already affected by protracted crises which are likely to cause a further deterioration of food insecurity
