    The Early Warning Early Action (EWEA) report on food security and agriculture is developed by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). It provides a quarterly forward-looking analysis of major disaster risks to food security and agriculture, specifically highlighting: - potential new emergencies resulting from imminent disaster threats - new developments in countries already affected by protracted crises which are likely to cause a further deterioration of food insecurity This report is part of FAO’s efforts to systematically link early warnings to anticipatory actions. By providing specific early action recommendations for each country, the report aims to prompt FAO and partners to proactively mitigate and/or prevent disasters before they start to adversely impact food security. In order of intensity, for the period July–September 2018, the high risk section includes: • Yemen • Democratic Republic of the Congo • South Sudan • Bangladesh and Myanmar • Central African Republic • Sahel • Afghanistan

    Global Early Warning – Early Action Report on Food Security and Agriculture

    The Global Early Warning - Early Action System Report on food security and agriculture is developed by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) through its Early Warning/Early Action System (EWEA). The System is developed by FAO to translate forecasts and early warnings into anticipatory action. The aim of EWEA is to enable FAO to act early before disasters take place to mitigate or even prevent their impact. By lessening damages to livelihoods and protecting assets and investments, FAO can help local livelihoods become more resilient to threats and crises. The Global EWEA report is a quarterly forward-looking analytical summary of the major disaster risks to food security and agriculture. The report highlights specifically two kinds of contexts: Potential new emergencies caused by an imminent disaster threats; and countries currently facing protracted crises or already in the response stage of an emergency. The risk of a significant deterioration of the situation with a severe impact on food security and/or agriculture is also covered. For this kind of risk, the analysis will focus on the additional risk factors which would, either alone or in combination with others, lead to a substantial deterioration of the situation.

    Horn of Africa: Impact of Early Warning Early Action
    Protecting pastoralist livelihoods ahead of drought

    There is evidence that the intensity and frequency of climate-driven natural disasters and conflicts are increasing. Natural disasters now occur nearly five times as often as 40 years ago. The impact on local economies, on people's livelihoods and on lives has similarly grown. In some of the worst-hit places, it can seem unrelenting. One drought will follow another, every time stripping away the limited assets of poor and vulnerable people, robbing them of their self-reliance and wounding their humanity and dignity. Globally, expanding needs, competing priorities and limited resources mean that new tools are essential to make interventions as wisely and effectively as possible, to ensure that the impacts of crises are limited before they can grow into even more costly humanitarian disasters. Carefully timed support also protects and empowers people the most, giving them the confidence to keep going or to resume their livelihoods. Investing in early action means FAO can help shelter longer-term development gains and increase resilience. Working with national governments and humanitarian, development and scientific partners, FAO’s Early Warning Early Action approach monitors risk information systems and translates warnings into anticipatory actions. This study analyses the outcomes of early actions implemented in Kenya, Somalia and Ethiopia in 2017, evaluating how effective they were in mitigating the impact of severe drought on vulnerable pastoralist livelihoods and quantifying the benefits generated through acting early.
