The quarterly Global Early Warning – Early Action Report on Food Security and Agriculture monitors situations at risk for potential disasters and adverse impacts on food security and agriculture. Risks are categorized according to their potential consequence as either “high risk” or “on watch” so that preventive action can be taken. The Report provides consolidated, easy to read, country-by-country mapping and analysis of crisis situations such as conflict, drought, flood, plants and animals pests and diseases.

In the July to September 2017 edition, the following countries and risks are included:

HIGH RISK: Yemen (risk of famine), South Sudan (risk of famine due to conflict), Nigeria – northeast (risk of famine due to conflict), Somalia (risk of famine due to drought), Democratic Republic of Congo (localized conflict), Kenya & Ethiopia (drought).

ON WATCH: Africa – Fall Armyworm (outbreak), Uganda (displacement), Sri Lanka (prolonged drought and localized floods), Central African Republic (escalation of localized conflict driving displacements), Chad (displacement and deteriorating food security) and El Niño (droughts, floods and cyclones).
