The Global Early Warning - Early Action System Report on food security and agriculture is developed by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) through its Early Warning/Early Action System (EWEA). The System is developed by FAO to translate forecasts and early warnings into anticipatory action. The aim of EWEA is to enable FAO to act early before disasters take place to mitigate or even prevent their impact. By lessening damages to livelihoods and protecting assets and investments, FAO can help local livelihoods become more resilient to threats and crises. The Global EWEA report is a quarterly forward-looking analytical summary of the major disaster risks to food security and agriculture. The report highlights specifically two kinds of contexts: Potential new emergencies caused by an imminent disaster threats; and countries currently facing protracted crises or already in the response stage of an emergency. The risk of a significant deterioration of the situation with a severe impact on food security and/or agriculture is also covered. For this kind of risk, the analysis will focus on the additional risk factors which would, either alone or in combination with others, lead to a substantial deterioration of the situation.
