This FAO-WFP early warning analysis of acute food insecurity hotspots report highlights countries which 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, with a particular focus on the secondary impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. It provides a forward-looking perspective, outlining the likely evolution of impacts over the next 6 or so months aiming to inform urgent action to safeguard food security of the most vulnerable communities in these locations. The report is divided into three sections:

  1. An overview on the main pathways of secondary impacts of COVID-19 on food security, nutrition and agriculture.
  2. Regional overviews and a focus on hotspot countries.
  3. Strategic recommendations that should be urgently implemented to avoid a large scale deterioration of acute food insecurity.
