    The increasing frequency and intensity of natural hazards including floods, droughts, volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, dust storms and wildfires, as well as man-made crises, including violence and conflicts, oil spills, dam failures, toxic wastes, industrial pollution, transport accidents, factory explosions, fires and chemical spills have devastating effects on food security and represent a substantial risk to sustainable agriculture and the livelihoods of people around the world. Thus, much attention has been given to reducing the likelihood of a hazard occurring as well as disaster risk, mitigating impacts and establishing early action and response, quickly and efficiently.

    On 6 February 2023, two devastating earthquakes struck southern Türkiye also affecting the northwestern governorates of the Syrian Arab Republic, causing extensive damage to agricultural livelihoods and production. This Data in Emergencies Impact (DIEM-Impact) report presents the results of the assessment carried out in March 2023 conducted by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). Data collection lasted for seven days and took place from 9 to 15 March. A total of 190 interviews were conducted in 135 communities. FAO created the DIEM-Impact system to provide a rapid, granular analysis of the consequences of large-scale hazards on agricultural value chains and livelihoods. This analysis is based on a variety of assessment methodologies, including primary and secondary information collection, remote sensing technologies, and FAO's damage and loss methodology. DIEM-Impact can be activated in the context of sudden-onset and slow-onset hazards, natural or human-induced, including floods, cyclones and tropical storms, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, drought, invasive pests such as fall armyworm, pandemics and economic crises.

    The Philippines has the second highest exposure to natural hazards of any country in the world It lies in the typhoon belt through which storms generated in the western Pacific Ocean pass As an archipelago with low lying coasts, the country is particularly exposed to storm surges, tsunamis and rising sea levels, with recent trends indicating an increased frequency and intensity of impact of hydro meteorological hazards From 1995 to 2013 the agriculture and fisheries sector absorbed an average 27 percent of the economic impacts of natural hazards and disasters, with losses from disasters jumping to 37 percent in the period 2010 2013 At least 60 percent of the land area of the Philippines is exposed to multiple hazards, including typhoons, tropical cyclones, floods, droughts, earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanic eruptions, landslides, forest fires and pandemics The country is also faced by agricultural and natural resource risks as a result of rapid urbanization, migration and socio economic changes The aim of the project was to increase resilience against multiple threats to the agriculture sector by facilitating the development of an Integrated Decision Support System for Enhanced Production and Risk Management in Agriculture This would allow key actors in DA to make more effective and timely decisions through more comprehensive and near real time access to crop production and risk and damage assessment information and tools The project would support three important dimensions of disaster risk reduction ( i e reducing existing risks, avoiding new risks and addressing underlying vulnerabilities.
