    Population of the Gaza Strip at risk of famine due to conflict
    2024
    Also available in:

    In the Gaza Strip, the ongoing conflict has caused the collapse of local livelihood systems and displaced about 1.9 million people. Between December 2023 and February 2024, the entire population (about 2.2 million people) is estimated to face high levels of acute food insecurity (IPC Phase 3 [Crisis] and above), including 576 000 people in IPC Phase 5 (Catastrophe). The risk of famine is very high, as the threshold for acute food insecurity has already been exceeded, while the thresholds for acute malnutrition and non-trauma mortality may also be breached by mid‑2024 if hostilities continue. The cessation of hostilities and unimpeded humanitarian access are urgently needed to avert the risk of famine.

    Drought conditions curbs cereal production, adding upward pressure on prices
    2023
    Also available in:

    Prolonged drought conditions since August 2022 have severely affected the country's 2022 wheat production and are expected to curb the 2023 maize output, currently being harvested. The decline in cereal production will likely affect farmers’ livelihoods and exert additional upward pressure on the already high prices, further constraining access to food for the most vulnerable households.

    The current critical food insecurity situation could deteriorate in the second half of 2023
    2023
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    The current food insecurity situation is critical due to reduced agricultural production in 2022, intensified conflict, record high food prices and the devastating effects of Cyclone Mocha. The conflict triggered record-high civilian displacements, currently estimated at 1.83 million people, a three-fold increase compared to the same period in 2022. Food insecurity could worsen if constrained access to fertilizer and intensified conflict persist, and if the forecast of below-average monsoon precipitation is realized, thus reducing cereal production in 2023.
