GIEWS Update – Burkina Faso

Food security situation deteriorating in northern areas due to heightened violence


  • In northern areas, an upsurge of violence by armed groups since early 2019 is severely damaging rural livelihood systems and driving widespread internal displacements.
  • The number of displaced people is currently estimated at about 220 000, almost five times the caseload in late 2018, and is expected to further escalate in the coming months.
  • Severe insecurity is significantly affecting livelihood and market activities constraining food availability and access, and the food security situation is rapidly deteriorating.
  • Urgent life-saving and livelihood support to vulnerable households is needed to mitigate the impact of the conflict on the humanitarian situation.
