FAO 2020–2021 La Niña advisory
Dec 2020

The La Niña meteorological phenomenon can have a severe impact on agriculture and food security. As of November 2020, a 95 percent chance of La Niña continuing through January–March 2021 was forecasted, with a 65 percent chance to persist into spring. The intensity of the phenomenon is foreseen to be medium to strong.

This advisory highlights a number of countries in the Greater Horn of Africa, Southern Africa, Southwest Asia and the Near East, and East Asia and the Pacific Islands that should be prioritized for international support in further analysis on the potential impact of La Niña. Anticipatory actions are recommended to mitigate negative repercussions on vulnerable communities.
