Acute Food Insecurity Classification

Based on the September IPC analysis, it is expected that 6.1 million1 people (59% of the total population) faced Crisis (IPC Phase 3) or worse acute food insecurity at the peak of the lean season (July – August), of whom 47,000 were in Catastrophe (IPC phase 5) and 1.7 million were in Emergency (IPC Phase 4). Food security has improved slightly with the green harvest in September relative to July and August, and further improvements are expected in the post-harvest period between October and December 2018 when the number of people in Crisis (IPC Phase 3) or worse is most likely to reduce to 4.4 million (43% of the total population), with 26,000 in Catastrophe (IPC Phase 5). However, an anticipated earlier than normal start of the lean season will result in an estimated 5.2 million (4[...]

Following the above-normal long rains across the country, significant improvement in food and nutrition situation was realized as evidenced by proportion of households with acceptable food consumption scores as result of improved crop and livestock productivity. Considering many of the arid counties experienced severe drought in the last three seasons, recovery has been slow and therefore there exists small proportion of households with poor food consumption gaps. Consequently, the 2018 long rains assessment established that approximately 700,000 people in arid and semi-arid (ASAL) counties are facing acute food in[...]

Chronic Food Insecurity Classification

The first IPC Chronic Food Insecurity analysis conducted in Honduras has allowed to estimate that 9 of the 10 departments of the Dry Corridor of the country are in Level 3 (Moderate Chronic Food Insecurity); and a department (Francisco Morazán) in Level 2 (Mild Chronic Food Insecurity). IPC Chronic Food Insecurity Analyses results are valid up to 5 years, in absence of unusual shocks. 23% of the analyzed households are in Levels 3 (17%) or 4 (6%). For these households, food consumption presents a deficit of dietary energy for at least 2 months a year and every day they do not consume a proper diet. These households are characterized by low purchasing power, which is aggravated by the constant increase of food prices, reflecting this condition in an access to an inadequate diet in term[...]

Chronic Food Insecurity Classification

In the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), two cleavages are visible: (i) the Eastern block, which is is strongly affected by armed conflicts of foreign troops and local militia, and (ii) the western and central blocks, more stable but very landlocked, developing rates of chronic malnutrition above the acceptable threshold. The national analysis of the Integrated Framework for the Classification of Chronic Food Security shows three major zones: (i) the city province of Kinshasa at Level 2 (light food insecurity), (ii) the center of the country and the Northeast at Level 4 (severe chronic food insecurity), and (iii) the remaining areas without Kinshasa at Level 3 (food insecurity).  According to national surveys conducted over the last ten years, three out of five households have acce[...]

Chronic Food Insecurity Classification

More than half of households in El Salvador are with some degree of chronic food insecurity (Levels 2, 3 or 4 of the IPC scale). 20% of households are in Levels 3 (15%) or 4 (5%). That is to say that their food consumption has energy deficits for at least 2 months per year and their dietary energy consumption is nutritionally deficient. In addition, they are probably households with children in moderate or severe chronic malnutrition. 35% of households have been classified in Level 2, with ability to access an adequate diet but not always a consumption of a diet with quality. Ten of the fourteen departments have been classified in Level 3 and therefore at least 20% of their households are found at Level 3 of chronic food insecurity or worse. According to the international prot[...]
