Acute Food Insecurity Classification

The present analysis of acute food insecurity is an update of the projected analysis carried out in November 2019, which includes 13 of the 18 departments of Honduras: Choluteca, Comayagua, Copán, El Paraíso, Francisco Morazán (not including the Central District), Intibucá, La Paz, Lempira, Ocotepeque, Olancho, Santa Bárbara, Valle and Yoro, analysing a total of 5.1 million inhabitants, equivalent to 53% of the total population of Honduras. This update covers the period of 1 June to 31 August 2020, which corresponds to the lean season and first planting. According to the livelihood zones, most of these departments belong to the zone of basic subsistence and livestock grains, and coffee cultivation. Likewise, in other departments such as Copán, tourism, remittances and other [...]

Acute Food Insecurity Classification

OVERVIEW In the current period (June to September 2020), an estimated 9.6 million people (21% of the population analysed) are experiencing Crisis or worse levels of food insecurity (IPC Phase 3 or above) and are in need of urgent action. This is the highest figure ever recorded in the history of IPC in Sudan compared to previous years. Around 2.2 million people are facing an Emergency acute food insecurity situation (IPC Phase 4) and around 7.4 million people are facing Crisis acute food insecurity (IPC Phase 3), while nearly 15.9 million people are estimated to be in Stress (IPC Phase 2). This is also a high figure compared to previous analyses; a result of population shifting to worse phases. Overall, all localities from 18 Sudanese States have been classified, with exception of At Tina[...]

Acute Food Insecurity Classification

How severe, how many and when: During the month of May 2020, which coincides with the lean season, approximately 42,000 people (0.4%) were classified in Emergency (IPC Phase 4), while approximately 1,402,000 people (13%) were classified in Crisis (IPC Phase 3), 3,919,000 (36%) in Stress (IPC Phase 2) and 5,587,000 (51%) as Food Secure (IPC Phase 1). During the projected period, which will coincide with the second harvest period of 2020, i.e. from June to August 2020, there could be a decrease in the population in Crisis and Emergency phases to about 859,000 people (8%), i.e. 42,000 in Emergency (0.4%) and 817,000 (7%) in Crisis. For the same projected analysis period, 3,108,000 people, or 28%, were classified in Stress (IPC Phase 2) and 6,983,000 people (64%) in Food Security (IPC Phase 1)[...]

Acute Food Insecurity Classification

Overview From June to August 2020, the period corresponding to the rainy and first planting season and considered as the peak of acute food insecurity within the agricultural cycle, 139,048 (29% of the analysed population) are in high acute food insecurity (IPC Phase 3+). Of these, 119,482 are in Crisis (IPC Phase 3) and 19,482 in Emergency (IPC Phase 4). Key Drivers COVID-19: In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic has led governments to implement contingency measures such as restriction of movement of people, goods and transport, limited market access and cross-border trade. These measures have resulted in the loss of employment and lower household incomes in both the formal and non-formal sectors in the MTFRL territory. In addition, remittances mainly from the United States, Spain and Italy h[...]

Acute Food Insecurity Classification

Between May and August 2020, corresponding to the lean season, it is estimated that despite planned food assistance, 29 sub-prefectures or 0.75 million people, representing 16% of the population, are in Emergency (IPC Phase 4), while 35 sub-prefectures or 1.6 million people, representing 35% of the population, are in Crisis (IPC Phase 3). A total of 2.36 million people (representing 51% of the population analysed, 4.59 million) are in a situation of acute food insecurity in IPC Phase 3+. In addition, 1.61 million people, representing 35% of the population analysed, are in Stress (IPC Phase 2) with some of them at risk of being in a more severe situation of food insecurity, should the current situation persist. Compared with the previous analysis, there has been a significant de[...]

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

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

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[...]
