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

An estimated 5.8 million people (14% of the total population) are experiencing Crisis or worse levels of food insecurity (IPC Phase 3 and above) and are in need urgent action. This figure is the highest on record since the introduction of the IPC analysis in Sudan. Around 1 million individuals are facing Emergency levels of acute food insecurity (IPC Phase 4) and around 4.8 million individuals are in Crisis (IPC Phase 3), while nearly 11.8 million are estimated to be in Stress Phase (IPC Phase 2). Overall, 162 localities from 17 states have been classified out of the 18 Sudan States.[...]

Acute Food Insecurity Classification

In the current period - the harvest period - from October to December 2018, 5.67 million people are estimated to be in Crisis and Emergency (IPC Phases 3 and 4), representing 12.8% of the analysed population. Almost 1 million people (986,174, representing 2.2% of the population analyzed) are in IPC Phase 4 (Emergency) and more than 4.5 million people (4,688,042, representing 10.6% of the population analyzed) are in IPC Phase 3 (Crisis).  In the projected period, corresponding to the post-harvest season, from January to March 2019, 5.76 million people are estimated to be in Crisis and Emergency (IPC Phases 3 and 4), representing 13% of the analyzed population. More than 1 million people (1,083,613, representing 2.4% of the population analyzed) are in IPC Phase 4 (Emergency) and more than [...]

Acute Food Insecurity Classification

In April 2018, 5.5 million people, 13% of the analyzed population, were estimated to be in Crisis and Emergency (IPC Phases 3 and 4) in Sudan and in need of urgent action. The estimate corresponds to an increase of 45% compared to the previous analysis occurred at the same period last year (2017).   In the projected period, from May to July 2018, people in Crisis (IPC Phase 3) and Emergency (IPC Phase 4) are expected to increase to up to 6 million which corresponds to 14% of the total population analyzed.   Darfur, where at least 2.1 million people are still displaced, accounts for about half of the population in Crisis and Emergency (IPC Phase 3 and 4). In North Darfur almost 1 million people are in IPC Phase 3 and 4. Two localities are in Emergency (IPC Phase 4), namely Tawi[...]

Acute Food Insecurity Classification

The October - December 2017 IPC Analysis for Sudan classified 18 states and 179 localities. 50 localities (62% of the total population) were classified in IPC Phase 1 (Minimal), given the acceptable levels of food consumption for most of the pupulations, availability of food for the diversity of sources of income, diversification of food sources and stability in livelihoods. 96 localities (29% of the total population) were classified in IPC Phase 2 (Stress) due to borderline food consumption in areas affected by droughts which have caused depletion of food stocks and have negatively affected food access for the poorest households. 33 localities (9% of the total population) are classified in IPC Phase 3 (Crisis), given poor food consumption due to depletion of household stocks and low[...]

Acute Malnutrition Classification

Acute malnutrition is widespread in Sudan, with 33 of the 90 localities (more than 30%) analysed have according to the IPC for Acute Malnutrition analysis.  North Darfur, Red Sea, and Blue Nile States have the highest number of localities with critical and extremely critical levels of acute malnutrition; Kassala, South Darfur and White Nile States all have at least one locality in critical and/or extremely critical levels of acute malnutrition. Inappropriate feeding practices, poor sanitation and water conditions coupled with cultural practices are attributable to these high levels of acute malnutrition and need urgent attention; in some localities diarrhoea outbreaks are also reported. While the acute malnutrition situation is expected to improve in majority of the states in the upc[...]
