Hunga Tonga–Hunga Ha’apai Volcano Eruption: DIEM-Impact – Update No. 2

Hunga Tonga–Hunga Ha’apai Volcano Eruption: DIEM-Impact – Update No. 2
Feb 2022

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) established Data in Emergencies Hazard Impact Assessment (DIEM-Impact) to provide a granular and rapid understanding of the impact of large-scale hazards on agriculture and agricultural livelihoods, using a variety of assessment methodologies, including primary and secondary information, remote sensing technologies and FAO’s damage and loss methodology.

The Hunga Tonga–Hunga Ha’apai undersea volcano in the Kingdom of Tonga erupted on 15 January 2022. The eruption resulted in two events with potential impact on agriculture livelihoods and all agriculture sub-sectors: (i) a volcanic ash cloud; and (ii) a tsunami. The Government of Tonga declared a state of emergency on 16 January 2022.

This is FAO's Hunga Tonga–Hunga Ha’apai Volcano Eruption DIEM-Impact Update No. 2. It presents initial post-disaster observations and recommendations that humanitarian actors can use to assess the situation and plan emergency data-driven livelihood support.
