    Monitoring food security in countries with conflict situations
    A joint FAO/WFP update for the members of the United Nations Security Council

    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.

    Monitoring food security in countries with conflict situations
    A joint FAO/WFP update for the members of the United Nations Security Council

    This seventh FAO/WFP update to the UNSC covers five countries (Afghanistan, the Central African Republic, Haiti, Somalia and South Sudan) and two regions (the Lake Chad Basin and central Sahel) that are currently experiencing protracted conflict and insecurity and in which, according to latest figures, almost 30 million people need urgent food, nutrition and livelihood assistance. The analysis indicates a worsening of the food security situation in Somalia, and persisting high levels of food insecurity in the Lake Chad Basin and Afghanistan. Although the numbers of acutely food insecure people in South Sudan showed a downward trend the analysis was carried out before the country was hit by devastating floods. The Central African Republic experienced a slight improvement thanks to the above-average harvest and improved security in some areas. Acute food insecurity levels in Haiti and central Sahel, which were not in the previous update, are extremely concerning and forecast to deteriorate. At the beginning of 2019, there were 41 active highly violent conflicts, an increase from 36 at the start of the previous year. These conflicts, which are mostly happening in already poor, fragile and food insecure areas, are causing immense suffering and a huge need for humanitarian assistance, which has been vital in preventing a worsening of food crises in many countries covered in this update. And yet distribution of relief assistance, assessment of needs and monitoring of beneficiaries is being increasingly constrained in all the countries and regions profiled in this update.
