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[...]

Aug 2019/ Jul 2020

Acute Food Insecurity Classification

OVERVIEW Currently, 45% of the rural population is in Crisis or Emergency (IPC Phase 3 and 4) while 29% is Stressed (IPC Phase 2). This is a deterioration from the last analysis conducted in June 2019, when 38% of the total population was in IPC Phase 3 and higher. The increase in the number of acutely food insecure population is primarily due to the lean season expected to extend until June. Review of the severity of the drivers of food insecurity in Zimbabwe shows that more households would likely be in a more challenging food security situation in the absence of a large-scale humanitarian food assistance programme ongoing in the country. The Government and partners are reaching large numbers of food insecure households, and genuine efforts need to continue to reach the most vulnerable [...]

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[...]

Aug 2019/ May 2020

Acute Malnutrition Classification

From June to October 2019, corresponding to the lean season (peak of malnutrition), 1 region and 19 departments were in Serious acute malnutrition (IPC Phase 3) and 2 other departments were in Critical acute malnutrition (IPC Phase 4). A total of 918,360 children aged 6 to 59 months will suffer from acute malnutrition during the year 2020, based on the results of the national SMART nutrition survey conducted between August and September 2019. From November 2019 to February 2020, the nutritional situation has likely improved, with 1 department in a Critical phase, and 3 other departments and 1 region in a Serious phase. From May 2020, if increased measures are not taken, a fairly significant deterioration to the nutritional situation will likely occur. Therefore, 2 departments [...]

Feb 2020/ Jun 2020

Acute Food Insecurity Classification

In the analysis period of January 2020, 5.29 million people (45.2% of the population) are estimated to have faced Crisis (IPC Phase 3) or worse acute food insecurity, of which 1.11 million people faced Emergency (IPC Phase 4) acute food insecurity. About 40,000 people were classified in Catastrophe (IPC Phase 5) in the counties of Akobo , Duk  and Ayod  in Jonglei State. Compared with the same time last year, the January 2020 levels of food insecurity reflect a 9% reduction  in the proportion of population facing Crisis (IPC Phase 3) or worse acute food insecurity. In the projection period of February to April 2020, 6.01 million people (51.4% of the population) will likely face Crisis (IPC Phase 3) or worse acute food insecurity, with 20,000 people in the counties of Akobo and Duk esti[...]

Acute Food Insecurity Classification

Between November 2019 and April 2020, nearly one million people, 20% out of a population of 4.8 million in 16 analysed districts of Tanzania, were estimated to be experiencing severe food insecurity (IPC Phase 3 and 4). An estimated 224,700 people (5%) were classified in IPC Phase 4 (Emergency) and around 760,600 people (16%) in IPC Phase 3 (Crisis). Around 1,655,600 people (34%) were classified in IPC Phase 2 (Stress). Food insecurity was driven primarily by a prolonged dry spell, coupled with Fall Armyworm infestations and erratic rainfall in the 2018/19 planting season, leading to decreased production in both the Masika and Msimu harvests.  The poor harvest resulted in limited food availability and a reduction of casual on-farm labour opportunities related to post-harvest activities.[...]

Acute Food Insecurity Classification

Despite above-average national cereal crop production and improved livestock production following a largely favorable Deyr (October-December) rainy season, up to 1.3 million people across Somalia are expected to face food consumption gaps or depletion of assets indicative of Crisis (IPC Phase 3)1 or worse outcomes through mid-2020. In addition, nearly 963 000 children under the age of five are likely to be acutely malnourished through December 2020. Sustained and large-scale humanitarian assistance is currently preventing more severe outcomes in many areas. However, deterioration is expected in the food security situation between April and June 2020 in some areas where food and income sources are not expected to be sufficient to meet minimum kilocalorie requirements. Thus far, Desert [...]

Acute Food Insecurity Classification

Overview Between December 2019 and March 2020, 850,000 people in the rural areas of Guatemala are classified in IPC Phase 3 (Crisis) and about 197,000 in IPC Phase 4 (Emergency), in total around 1.05 million people, and require urgent action. This total will likely increase to over 1.32 million between April and July 2020. Until March 2020, the departments classified in Phase 3 (Crisis) are Alta Verapaz, Chiquimula and Suchitepéquez. From April to July 2020, the departments of Baja Verapaz, Huehuetenango, Quiché and Retalhuleu are also classified in Phase 3. The most vulnerable households in the rural areas are mainly subsistence farmers, who are experiencing a Phase 2 (Stress) food insecurity situation, manifested through poor food consumption caused by the decline in their stocks of [...]

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[...]
