Acute Food Insecurity Classification

Overview From November 2019 to February 2020, about 962,000 people are in IPC Phase 3 (Crisis) or in more severe Phases and therefore require urgent action. This figure will likely increase to 1.22 million between March and June 2020. Until February 2020, the departments classified in IPC Phase 3 are El Paraíso, Francisco Morazán (except central district), Intibucá, La Paz, Copán, Choluteca and Valle. In the projection period, the departments of Comayagua, Lempira, Ocotepeque and Santa Bárbara have also been classified in IPC Phase 3. The population most affected consists mainly of subsistence farmers who have lost more than 50% of their basic grains and who are forced to use Crisis and Emergency coping strategies to bridge their food gaps, such as migration. In this group, food expe[...]

Acute Food Insecurity Classification

In the period from September 2019 to April 2020, corresponding to the post-harvest period in most of the country's agro-climatic zones, it is estimated that despite planned food assistance, the sub-prefectures of Obo, Zémio, Bria, Ndjoukou, Ippy, Kouango, Batangafo and Kabo are in Emergency (IPC Phase 4), while 47 sub-prefectures are in Crisis (IPC Phase 3).  1.6 million people, representing 35% of the population analysed (4.6 million), are severely acutely food insecure, including 375,000 (nearly 10%) in Emergency situations. During the lean season, between May and August 2020, in the absence of food assistance, it is estimated that 2.1 million people, representing 47% of the population analysed, will be severely acutely food insecure, including more than 675,000 people in Emergency sit[...]

Acute Food Insecurity Classification

For the period from July to October 2019, compared to 2018 for the same period, the situation has improved considerably: only one district (Ampanihy) out of the 13 analysed is in Crisis (IPC Phase 3), and the rest are in Stress (IPC Phase 2). No district is in IPC Phase 4.  Despite this improvement, in all the areas analysed, more than 500,000 people are in severe acute food insecurity (IPC Phase 3 and above), representing 14% of the population in the areas analysed. Ampanihy District has a higher proportion of the population in this category (25% of the population) than other districts, with nearly 99,600 people.  From November 2019 to March 2020, which coincides with the lean season, it is estimated that the situation will likely worsen, with all districts moving to IPC Phase 3 (Crisi[...]

Acute Food Insecurity Classification

Food security analysis conducted in six regions of Ethiopia indicates that, despite ongoing assistance, an estimated 8 million people (27% of the 28.7 million people analysed) were severely food insecure in IPC Phase 3 (Crisis) or worse between July and September 2019. Of these, about 6.1 million people were classified in IPC Phase 3 (Crisis) and about 1.9 million people in IPC Phase 4 (Emergency).  Between October 2019 and January 2020, Ethiopia’s food security situation is likely to improve slightly due to the seasonal (Meher) harvests. However, the below  normal  Belg season production, conflict and climate-induced displacement, high food prices, and the long dry spell in the northeastern pastoral areas will likely affect the food security situation resulting in about 6.7 million [...]

Jul 2019/ Jun 2020

Acute Food Insecurity Classification

Between August and October 2019, it is estimated that a total of 10.23 million people (33% of the total population) were in severe acute food insecurity and require urgent humanitarian action. These include around 7.79 million people in a Crisis situation (IPC Phase 3) and 2.44 million people in an Emergency situation (IPC Phase 4). Around 10.37 million people were also in a Stressed situation (IPC Phase 2) and require livelihood support.  Between November 2019 and March 2020, around 11.29 million people (37% of the total population) are estimated to likely experience severe acute food insecurity, out of which an estimated 8.6 million people will likely be in a Crisis situation (IPC Phase 3) and nearly 2.7 million people will likely be in an Emergency situation (IPC Phase 4). Furthermore[...]

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

DISCLAIMER: please note that this IPC Acute Malnutrition analysis was integrated with an IPC Acute Food Insecurity analysis referring to the same period. Please click here. The prevalence of acute malnutrition is distributed as follows:  Critical: Turkana, Samburu, Mandera, East Pokot, North Horr Serious: West Pokot, Tana River, Garissa, Wajir Alert: Moyale, Saku, Baringo North/Marigat Acceptable: Narok, Kajiado, Makueni, Taita Taveta, Kwale, Kilifi.  The overall nutrition situation is projected to remain stable in most areas. However, past trends suggest the potential for fast deterioration in highly vulnerable counties such as Turkana and Mandera as households here have not yet fully recovered. In addition, poor child care practices, high morbidity, low literacy, poverty, and limite[...]
