Acute Food Insecurity Classification

Note: These are preliminary findings pending the official release at country level  About 13.1 million people are estimated to face Crisis (IPC Phase 3) and Emergency (IPC Phase 4) acute food insecurity. This represents 23% of the rural population of 101 territories, out of 145 territories; Areas affected by armed and inter-ethnic / community conflict continue to be the most vulnerable to acute food insecurity. In fact, 9 territories were classified in Emergency (IPC Phase 4). These are the Djugu territories (Ituri); Kalemie, Nyunzu and Manono (Tanganyika); Mitwaba and Pweto (Upper Katanga); Kamonia and Mweka (Kasai); and Miabi (Kasai Oriental). Thirty-one other territories were classified in Crisis (IPC Phase 3) and are scattered across the country, including in stable areas; Severa[...]

Acute Food Insecurity Classification

In total, the number of people in acute food insecurity and livelihood crisis (IPC Phases 3 and 4) is estimated at 7.7 million people in the rural areas covered by this 15th cycle IPC Analysis. These populations are in need of urgent help aimed at saving lives through holistic assistance for basic needs (food, water, medicine, housing, emergency agricultural production, etc.). Comparing the 14th cycle from June 2016 to the 15th cycle of June 2017, there is a serious deterioration in food security in the Democratic Republic of Congo. In one year (5.9 million in June 2016 and 7.7 million in June 2017), the increase in people with severe food deficits and acute malnutrition at high or above normal levels was higher than 30%. Efforts by the Government (and its technical and financial partn[...]

Acute Food Insecurity Classification

In the Democratic Republic of Congo, the 14th cycle of IPC acute food insecurity analysis covered 136 territories, 94% of the national territory. Four areas are of major concern:  Areas heavily affected by armed conflict in the east of the country causing population displacement, incursion of foreign and national armed groups; Areas affected by climatic and natural events such as floods due to the El Nino; these include areas where crops were decimated by rainwater and those affected by locusts, other plant pests and bush fires. Epidemics are recurrent and access to drinking water is very low; Main Areas of Burundian, Central Africa and South Sudanese refugees and other displaced groups which increases the pressure on the livelihoods of indigenous peoples; and Areas facing chronic [...]

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[...]
