    The triannual Crop Prospects and Food Situation report provides a forward-looking analysis of the food situation across the globe, focusing on the cereal production outlook, market situation and food security conditions, with a particular attention on low-income food-deficit countries. FAO assesses that globally 45 countries/territories, including 33 in Africa, nine in Asia, two in Latin America and the Caribbean and one in Europe, are in need of external assistance for food. The severest levels of acute food insecurity are found in territories affected by conflict, including Palestine (Gaza Strip) and the Sudan, where the local population is also facing the risk of famine. Drought conditions in Southern Africa are expected to worsen acute food insecurity conditions in 2024. The report includes the global cereal production forecast for 2024 that scaled up and is now set to exceed the 2023 level.

    FAO assesses that globally 45 countries, including 33 in Africa, nine in Asia, two in Latin America and the Caribbean and one in Europe, are in need of external assistance for food. In East Africa, engendered by multi-season droughts, the food insecurity situation is grave and unless humanitarian assistance is scaled up, famine is expected in parts of Somalia. Globally, multi-year high inflation rates, amid challenging macroeconomic environments, are aggravating food insecurity conditions, particularly in low‑income food­‑deficit countries.

    The triannual Crop Prospects and Food Situation report provides a forward-looking analysis of the food situation across the globe, focusing on the cereal production outlook, market situation and food security conditions, with a particular attention on low-income food-deficit countries (LIFDCs).At the start of 2024, FAO assesses that globally 45 countries/territories, including 33 in Africa, nine in Asia, two in Latin America and the Caribbean and one in Europe, are in need of external assistance for food. Conflicts in Near East Asia, and in West and East Africa are driving alarmingly high levels of the most severe phase of acute food insecurity, while widespread dry weather conditions are expected to aggravate acute food insecurity in Southern Africa. The report includes the first global wheat production forecast for 2024. The preliminary wheat production outlook indicates an expected 1 percent year-on-year increase in the world output to 797 million tonnes in 2024, albeit still remaining slightly below the record reached in 2022.
