Early Warning Early Action report on food security and agriculture

October – December 2018
10/10/2018

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

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
