n early-May 2023, Rwanda experienced significant floods and landslides in the northern and western parts of the country.


n 2022, flooding had devastating consequences in the Sahel, destroying the livelihoods of 1.4 million people and affecting more than 2.7 million ha of agricultural land and 1.2 million heads of livestock.


The Data in Emergencies (DIEM) Information System has provided partners and stakeholders with the information necessary to make decisions, design programmes and mobilize resources in food crisis countries since June 2020.


Thanks to funding from the German Federal Foreign Office, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) is implementing Anticipatory Actions in the Niger and three other West African countries - Chad, Mali and Nigeria - to safeguard the lives and livelihoods of the most vulnerable people from forecast severe flooding in the region.


In the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, people living in the states of Amazonas and Sucre are facing some of the most severe humanitarian conditions in the country due to access challenges and the presence of non-state armed groups.
