Conflict, natural disasters and cross-border movements continue to increase food insecurity in Afghanistan. Recurrent violence, economic slowdown, crop pests and natural hazards, such as drought and flooding, increased the vulnerability of already severely food-insecure populations, many living in hard-to-reach areas.

In December 2017, the Government of Iraq announced victory over the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), which took control of large parts of the country in 2014. While continuing to meet humanitarian needs, Iraq is transitioning towards recovery and resilience, including restoring the agriculture sector.
