    Syrian Arab Republic – Post-earthquake rapid needs assessment on agricultural livelihoods and production in the northwest

    On 6 February 2023, two devastating earthquakes struck southern Türkiye also affecting the northwestern governorates of the Syrian Arab Republic, causing extensive damage to agricultural livelihoods and production. This Data in Emergencies Impact (DIEM-Impact) report presents the results of the assessment carried out in March 2023 conducted by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). Data collection lasted for seven days and took place from 9 to 15 March. A total of 190 interviews were conducted in 135 communities. FAO created the DIEM-Impact system to provide a rapid, granular analysis of the consequences of large-scale hazards on agricultural value chains and livelihoods. This analysis is based on a variety of assessment methodologies, including primary and secondary information collection, remote sensing technologies, and FAO's damage and loss methodology. DIEM-Impact can be activated in the context of sudden-onset and slow-onset hazards, natural or human-induced, including floods, cyclones and tropical storms, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, drought, invasive pests such as fall armyworm, pandemics and economic crises.

    Afghanistan: Cold wave assessment on livestock

    Between December 2022 and January 2023, Afghanistan experienced an extreme cold wave. The central region of Ghor recorded the lowest reading of -33°C. A reported 124 people died from hypothermia and anecdotal sources suggest the loss of a large number of livestock ranging from 70 000 to 200 000. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) Data in Emergencies Information System (DIEM) and its Food Security Cluster partners launched an assessment in the aftermath of the cold wave. The assessment aimed to identify the areas most exposed to cold temperatures and losses; analyse the effects and impacts of the cold wave on livestock and livestock-based livelihoods; assess the preparedness measures that mitigated the effects of the cold wave on livestock; and identify suitable response and preparedness interventions. FAO established 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. DIEM-Impact presents a regularly updated and accessible state of food insecurity in fragile environments and helps underpin FAO's programming based on evidence.

    South Sudan: The impact of conflict on food security and livelihoods
    DIEM-Impact report, January 2024
    2024
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    Food insecurity in South Sudan is driven by cascading shocks including conflict and insecurity, macro-economic crisis caused by the depreciation of the local currency, high inflation, conflict in the Sudan, climatic shocks (floods and dry spells), climate- and conflict-induced population displacement, persistent low agricultural production levels, and the cumulative effects of prolonged years of asset depletion that continue to erode the coping capacities of households and the loss of livelihoods. This DIEM-Impact assessment adopted qualitative research approaches and enabled an understanding of experiences, attitudes, behaviours and interactions in relation to conflict and food insecurity, and the impacts of floods in locations where they have been prevalent. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) established Data in Emergencies Impact (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. DIEM-Impact presents a regularly updated and accessible state of food insecurity in fragile environments and helps underpin FAO's programming based on evidence.
