    Monitoring food security in countries with conflict situations

    This update, facilitated by the Food Security Information Network and produced under the Global Network Against Food Crises, provides the members of the United Nations Security Council with an overview of the magnitude, severity and drivers of acute food insecurity in nine countries and territories that have the world’s highest burden of people in need of emergency food, nutrition and livelihood assistance as a result of protracted conflict combined with other factors. This issue focuses on the acute food insecurity situation in: Afghanistan, the Central African Republic, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, the Lake Chad Basin, Somalia, South Sudan, the Sudan, the Syrian Arab Republic and Yemen. The latest evidence clearly shows a general deterioration in the food security situation in countries with conflict between January and August 2019. In South Sudan, food security has continued to decline despite the peace process. Similarly, a worsening situation is observed in the Lake Chad Basin (particularly in Cameroon’s Far North), the Sudan, Afghanistan and the Syrian Arab Republic. In Yemen and the Central African Republic, armed conflict has persisted even after the implementation of peace accords. The provision of multi-sector humanitarian assistance has been vital in preventing catastrophic food crises in these countries from worsening. Yet, access to distribute relief assistance, assess needs and monitor beneficiaries is severely constrained by continued fighting and violence against humanitarian workers. High fuel prices, checkpoints, landmines and explosive remnants of war, damaged roads and difficult terrain have further exacerbated access constraints in these countries/territories.

    The fifth issue of the FAO/WFP update for the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) provides United Nations Security Council (UNSC) members with an overview of the magnitude, severity and drivers of acute food insecurity in eight countries and regions that have the world’s highest burden of people in need of emergency food, nutrition and livelihood assistance as a result of protracted conflict combined with other factors. These countries are: Afghanistan, Central African Republic, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Lake Chad Basin, Somalia, South Sudan, Syrian Arab Republic and Yemen. According to latest analyses from late 2018 (mainly Integrated Food Security Phase Classification [IPC]), around 56 million people need urgent food and livelihood assistance in these countries.

This issue focuses on the following countries: Afghanistan, Burkina Faso, Cameroon, the Central African Republic, Chad, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ethiopia, Haiti, Mali, Mozambique, Myanmar, the Niger, Nigeria, Palestine, Somalia, South Sudan, the Sudan, the Syrian Arab Republic and Yemen.
