Acute Food Insecurity Classification

The IPC current post harvest analysis shows a slight improvement in the food security situation in the country compared to the pre-harvest IPC acute analysis of 2016.  Out of 34 provinces, 11 are classified in IPC Phase 2 (Stressed), other 22 were classified in IPC Phase 3 (Crisis) and only one province, Badghis, is classified in IPC Phase 4 (Emergency).  Out of 22 provinces classified in IPC Phase 3 (Emergency), provinces with higher number of people in Phase 4 are: Badghis (25%), Faryab (16%), Khost (15%), Bamyan (14%), Ghor (12%) and Kandahar (11%).

Acute Food Insecurity Classification

IPC Acute analysis was carried out for clustered districts in the provinces of east region Nangarhar, Kunar, Laghman and Nooristan. Each province comprised of several clusters, within each province 1-4 districts are grouped in each cluster. Based on the IPC acute analysis of the 4 provinces overall 26% of the population in east region are classified in phase 3 & 4 of IPC acute food security phase classification. Achen, Naziyan & Badpakh are the most food insecure districts with 13- 15 % Food insecure population in emergency. Mostly, capital of the provinces such as Jalal Abad and Mehtarlam are the vulnerable locations that are suffering with large number of food insecure population due to huge influx returnees and returnees. Beside the Returnees and IDPS, host communities ar[...]

Acute Food Insecurity Classification

From April to June 2016, 8.4 million people were classified in the acute food insecurity crisis and emergency situation all over Afghanistan. The most food insecure populations were located in Ghor, Badakhshan, Nuristan & Nangarhar that were in higher crises & emergency phases.  With the arrival of winter and peak of lean season, refugees population would be of greatest concern. National wheat production in Afghanistan is likely to be good due to relatively favourable weather and precipitation that increased cultivation of both rain-fed and irrigated wheat. This precipitation has also improved spring pasture condition. During the projected period between July and December 2016, internal conflicts and policy changes of neighbouring countries on Afghan refugees causing waves of re[...]

Acute Food Insecurity Classification

Notice: Indicative IPC Acute Phase Classification is a new pilot initiative by the IPC GSU to allow classification of areas when (i) the minimum confidence level of analyses is not reached due to absence of reliable or up to date outcome evidence as a result of lack of humanitarian access and (ii) the area classification is reviewed and cleared as plausible by the IPC GSU Quality Review team.
