    FAO–WFP early warnings on acute food insecurity: November 2023 to April 2024 outlook
    2023
    Also available in:

    In the current edition of a regular joint bi-yearly report, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the World Food Programme (WFP) issue an early warning for urgent humanitarian action in 18 hunger hotspots in which acute food insecurity is likely to deteriorate further during the outlook period from November 2023 to April 2024. The report also identifies main drivers of acute food insecurity and country specific priorities for both emergency and anticipatory action. Selected through a comprehensive forward looking analysis, in the 18 hunger hotspots– comprising a total of 22 countries or territories including 2 regional clusters – parts of the population will likely face a significant deterioration of already high levels of acute food insecurity, putting lives and livelihoods at risk. Weather extremes, such as heavy rains, tropical storms, cyclones, flooding, drought and increased climate variability, remain significant drivers of acute food insecurity. The report also provides country-specific recommendations on priorities for emergency response, as well as anticipatory actions to address existing humanitarian needs and ensure short-term protective interventions before new needs materialize. Urgent and scaled-up assistance is required in all 18 hunger hotspots to protect livelihoods and increase access to food. This is essential to avert a further deterioration of acute food insecurity and malnutrition. In the hotspots of highest concern, humanitarian actions are critical in preventing further starvation and death. However, humanitarian access is limited in various ways, including insecurity due to organized violence or conflict, the presence of administrative or bureaucratic impediments, and movement restrictions.

For the outlook period, FAO and WFP are issuing an early warning for urgent humanitarian action in 18 hunger hotspots, including 2 regional clusters and comprising a total of 22 countries. In the hunger hotspots, parts of the population will likely face a significant deterioration of already high levels of acute food insecurity, putting lives and livelihoods at risk. Targeted humanitarian action is urgently needed to save lives and livelihoods in all 18 hunger hotspots. In eight of these – Afghanistan, Haiti, Nigeria, the Sahel region (Burkina Faso and Mali), Somalia, South Sudan, the Sudan and Yemen – humanitarian action is critical to prevent starvation and death.
