    The quarterly Global Early Warning – Early Action Report on Food Security and Agriculture monitors situations at risk for potential disasters and adverse impacts on food security and agriculture. Risks are categorized according to their potential consequence as either “high risk” or “on watch” so that preventive action can be taken. The Report provides consolidated, easy to read, country-by-country mapping and analysis of crisis situations such as conflict, drought, flood, plants and animals pests and diseases. In the April to June, 2017 issue, areas of high risk are South Sudan, due to ongoing famine and conflict; and Yemen and Northeast Nigeria where there is risk of famine linked to conflict; and Somalia, where risk of famine is due to continuing drought. Current on watch situations are caused by a potential El Niño. In the Sub-Saharan Region there is a Fall Army Worm outbreak; In Syria, Iraq, and the Democratic Republic of Congo food security is at risk due to conflict; while Kenya, Ethiopia, Sri Lanka, and Uganda are at risk because of drought, and as well, displacement is an added factor for Uganda; Madagascar has dry conditions and cyclone.

    Famine is ongoing in Unity State, with one in five households affected in Leer. Since the declaration of famine on 20 February, there has been a massive response from the international community. Despite this, the food crisis continues to worsen, as many have faced severe food insecurity for over a year. The situation is likely to deteriorate in Jonglei and Upper Nile in the next three months, with some pockets of northern Jonglei becoming increasingly isolated. The first rains arrived on time, and drought is abating in the semi-arid southeast of the country, providing much needed relief for Greater Kapoeta and Pibor. The IPC is currently being revised and the latest analysis will be released in the first week of June. Displacement figures continue to rise, as of the end of April, 1.9 million people were internally displaced within South Sudan, and a further 1.83 million people have fled to neighbouring countries. The South Sudanese Pound (SSP) has devalued, as the economic crisis cont inues.
