    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.

    On 3 November 2023, a 6.4 magnitude earthquake struck Nepal, resulting in the loss of lives and property and causing extensive damage to the agriculture sector, the source of livelihoods for many of the affected households. These losses are expected to have both an immediate and long-term impact on the affected households, many of whom were already facing moderate or severe food insecurity prior to the earthquake. In the wake of these devastating impacts, the Government of the Kingdom of Belgium contributed USD 500 000 to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations through the Special Fund for Emergency and Rehabilitation Activities, to provide agricultural production inputs to 1 400 earthquake-affected households (7 700 people). This document provides a brief description of the situation, impact on agricultural livelihoods and planned interventions aimed at helping the targeted households resume food production and restore their livelihoods.

    On 22 June 2022, a 5.9 earthquake struck Afghanistan's central region. The provinces of Khost and Paktika were the most affected. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) established Data in Emergencies Impact (DIEM-Impact) to provide a granular and rapid understanding of the impact of large-scale hazards on agriculture and agricultural livelihoods using a variety of assessment methodologies, including primary and secondary information, remote sensing technologies, and FAO’s damage and loss methodology. DIEM-Impact presents a regularly updated and accessible state of food insecurity in fragile environments and helps underpin FAO's programming based on evidence. In July and August 2022, DIEM-Impact conducted an impact assessment to evaluate the effects of the earthquake on agricultural livelihoods and food security across three districts in the affected provinces. This report presents the results of the assessment.
