Acute Food Insecurity Classification

How severe, how many and when: In the current post-harvest period (between August and September), 42,000 people were classified as being in Emergency (IPC Phase 4), while 713,000 (6% of the analysed population) were classified as being in Crisis (IPC Phase 3), and 3,293,000 (28%) in Stressed (IPC Phase 2). During the upcoming lean season (October to December) the population facing high levels of acute food insecurity is expected to increase to 1,335,000 people (11% of the analysed population). This means the proportion of populations in Crisis and Emergency phases would increase by 57% in the projected period compared to the current period. Where and who: During the current period, all of the country’s livelihood zones (ZME) have been classified in Stressed (IPC Phase 2), with t[...]

Acute Food Insecurity Classification

Overview In the current period (July to December 2020) out of the 66.6 million people analysed in the Democratic Republic of Congo, 21.8 million (33%) are facing high acute food insecurity, classified in IPC Phase 3 or 4 (Crisis or worse). This figure includes 5.7 million people classified in IPC Phase 4 (Emergency). For the projected period (January to June 2021), 19.6 million people (29% of the population analysed) are likely to be in Crisis (IPC Phase 3) or worse, including more than 4.9 million people in Emergency (IPC Phase 4). The provinces of North and South Kivu, Ituri and Kasai Central have the highest number of populations facing high acute food insecurity. Key Drivers Conflict: Insecurity and armed conflict continue to significantly disrupt livelihoods, especially in Itur[...]

Acute Food Insecurity Classification

In the current period (July – September 2020), around 428,000 people (17% of the population) are facing high levels of acute food insecurity (IPC Phase 3) or worse, including around 45,000 people in Emergency (IPC Phase 4). This population requires urgent humanitarian action in order to reduce food gaps, protect and restore livelihoods and prevent acute malnutrition. The regions of Kunene, Erongo, Khomas, Ohangwena, Kavango West, Omaheke and Zambezi are classified in Crisis (IPC Phase 3) while the remaining seven analysed districts are in Stressed (IPC Phase 2). The main drivers of acute food insecurity in the country are: prolonged dry spells, flooding and loss of income due to impacts of COVID-19 control measures on livelihoods. In the projected period (October 2020 to March 2021), [...]

Acute Food Insecurity Classification

In the current period (July to September 2020), around 10% of the population (1.69 million people) are facing high levels of acute food insecurity (IPC Phase 3) or higher and require urgent action to reduce food gaps, protect and restore livelihoods, and prevent acute malnutrition. Out of the 32 areas analysed, including 28 districts and four cities, 30 areas are classified in Stressed (IPC Phase 2), while two areas (Chitipa and the Island of Likoma on Lake Malawi) are classified in No Acute Food Insecurity (IPC Phase 1). During the projected period of October 2020 to March 2021, around 15% of the population (2.62 million people) are expected to be in Crisis (IPC Phase 3) or higher. All the analysed cities (Lilongwe, Blantyre, Mzuzu and Zomba), along with the three rural districts of[...]

Jul 2020/ Mar 2021

Acute Food Insecurity Classification

Overview Food security analysis for rural populations dependent on Belg pastoral and agro-pastoral areas, conducted in seven regions of Ethiopia, indicates that, despite ongoing Humanitarian Food Assistance (HFA), an estimated 8.5 million people (21% of the 41 million people analysed) are highly acute food insecure in Crisis (IPC Phase 3) or higher between July and September 2020. Of these, about 7.1 million people were classified in Crisis (IPC Phase 3) and about 1.4 million people in Emergency (IPC Phase 4). Between October and December 2020, Ethiopia’s food security situation is likely to improve slightly due to the seasonal (Meher) harvests. However, below-average Belg season production, due to desert locust infestation, poor rainfall performance in localized areas, conflict &[...]

Chronic Food Insecurity Classification

280,000 people (about a third of the total population) are in a chronic food insecurity situation requiring urgent intervention aimed, in particular, at improving food consumption, preventing malnutrition, promoting programs of safety nets and the elimination or reduction of the factors underlying this food insecurity. The most severely affected areas are the Obock regions in the north, the Ali Sabieh and Dikhil regions in the south, with respectively 30%, 25% and 20% of the rural population at IPC Level 4 (Severe). In the capital and its periphery (Balbala), 15% and 25% respectively are at Level 3, about 113,000 people. This analysis was done using data covering the period 2007 to 2017, however, the results will be valid for 5 years, from 2018 to 2022. Rural populations, particularly in [...]

Chronic Food Insecurity Classification

The analysis conducted in April 2018 shows that approximately 430 000 people of the population analysed (36 percent) are chronically food insecure across 12 municipalities and the special Administrative Region of Oecussi and Ambeno (SAROA); out of them, 176 000 people (15 percent) are experiencing severe chronic food insecurity (IPC level 4), and 254 000 people (21 percent) are moderately chronically food insecure (IPC level 3). Additionally, 461 000 people (39 percent) are mildly food insecure (IPC level 2). Only 25 percent of the population analysed is considered food secure (IPC level 1).  Of major concern are the municipalities of Ermera, Manufahi and the Special Administrative Region of Oé-Cusse Ambeno (SAROA), which fall under severe chronic food insecurity (IPC level 4). Other mu[...]

Chronic Food Insecurity Classification

KEY RESULTS The results of the first IPC Chronic Food Insecurity Analysis in Guatemala identified the following levels of Chronic Food Insecurity (CFI): five of the 22 departments are in IPC Phase 4; 13 departments in IPC Phase 3; and four departments in IPC Phase 2. Of the total population analysed that is equivalent to 17.3 million, 16% (2.7 million) are in IPC Phase 4 (Severe); 22% (3.8 million) are in IPC Phase 3 (Moderate), and 38% (6.6 million) are in IPC Phase 2 (Mild). The remaining 24% of the population (4.2 million) are in IPC Phase 1 (Minimal). Six and a half million people do not have adequate energy in their diet: 2.7 million for four or more months a year (Severe CFI), and 3.8 million, between two and four months a year (Moderate FCI). The population that inhabits these ho[...]

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[...]

Acute Malnutrition Classification

How severe? How many? When? The analysis of all 29 provinces (in 7 regions) from January 2020 was updated in May 2020, as a result of the emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic. In the areas in this analysis, the acute malnutrition situation is usually of concern between August and November and during the lean season (July - September). In total, it is estimated that 372,035 children aged 6 to 59 months will suffer from acute malnutrition during the year 2020 in these 7 regions, based on the results of the national nutrition survey (SMART) conducted between October and November 2019. The second projected situation subject to this update covers the period of April to July 2020. Where? The analysis reveals a deterioration of the nutritional situation in all provinces in the April - July period,[...]

Acute Malnutrition Classification

From February to April 2020, corresponding to the hunger gap period (peak of malnutrition), 4 districts were classified in the Serious phase (IPC Phase 3) and 2 districts in the Alert phase (IPC Phase 2). In total, more than 100,000 children are expected to suffer from acute malnutrition during the year 2020, including more than 19,000 severe cases in the 6 districts analysed, based on the combined prevalence of the 3 forms of acute malnutrition from the nutrition surveys conducted between February and March 2020. Between May and August 2020, the nutritional situation will not experience a marked change in all 6 districts analysed, which will therefore remain in the same phase as that of February – April 2020. From September 2020, if useful measures are not taken, a rather significant de[...]

Acute Malnutrition Classification

Overall, 29 provinces in seven regions of Burkina Faso were in an Alert (IPC Phase 2) to Serious (IPC Phase 3) nutritional situation between August and November 2019, which coincides with the peak period of malnutrition.  It is estimated that 360,048 children aged 6-59 months will suffer from acute malnutrition during 2020 based on the results of the national nutritional survey (SMART) conducted in October 2019. Between August-November 2019, 26 provinces were classified as Alert (IPC Phase 2), namely: Soum, Oudalan, Gourma, Gnagna, Kompièga, Komondjari, Tapoa, Bâlés, Banwa, Kossi, Mouhoun, Nayala, Sourou, Loroum, Passoré, Yatenga, Zandoma, Boulgou, Kouritenga, Koulpelgo, Bam, Namentenga, Sanmatenga, Ziro, Sanguié, Boulkiemdé and Sissili. Meanwhile, three provinces (Séno, Yagha and[...]

Acute Malnutrition Classification

How Severe, How Many and When – According to the Integrated Food Security Phase Classification Acute Malnutrition scale (IPC AMN), of the ten districts analysed in Northern Uganda, acute malnutrition is at an Alert level (IPC Phase 2) in 2 districts and an Acceptable level (IPC Phase 1) in the other 8 districts. More than 1 in every 20 children is affected by acute malnutrition in the 2 districts classified as being in Alert. Despite 3 other districts being classified as Acceptable, they do have relatively high numbers of children under the age of five with acute malnutrition (i.e. > 4% of acute malnutrition). Where – The districts classified as being in Alert (IPC Phase 2) are namely Otuke and Omoro. Acute malnutrition levels in these 2 districts are respectively 6.1% a[...]

Acute Malnutrition Classification

In total, 6 provinces and 27 departments of Chad were in a Serious (IPC Phase 3) to Critical (IPC Phase 4) nutritional situation between August and September 2019, which coincides with the peak period of malnutrition. It is estimated that more than 1.8 million children aged 6-59 months will likely suffer from acute malnutrition during the year 2020, based on the results of the national SMART survey conducted in August 2019. Between October and December 2019, the situation likely improved, with 4 provinces and 13 departments in Serious to Critical conditions. From May 2020, if the necessary measures have not been taken, we could again see a fairly significant deterioration in the nutritional situation with 5 provinces and 16 departments in the Serious to Critical phases (IPC Phas[...]
