FAO and WFP Forecast Food Insecurity in the Coming Months

More people are projected to face acute food insecurity globally, as the
food crisis worsens in 19 hunger hotspots. This is according to the
latest joint report of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the
United Nations (FAO) and UN World Food Programme (WFP) report
titled/Hunger Hotspots FAO-WFP Early Warnings on Acute Food Insecurity:
October 2022 to January 2023 Outlook./

The expected increase in food insecurity is attributed to rising
conflict, weather extremes, and economic instability intensified by the
pandemicand the ripple effects of the crisis in Ukraine. Thus FAO and
WFP call for urgent humanitarian action to save lives and livelihoods
and prevent famine in hotspot countries.

??The severe droughtin the Horn of Africa has pushed people to the brink
of starvation, destroying crops and killing livestock on which their
survival depends. Acute food insecurity is rising fast and spreading
across the world. People in the poorest countries, in particular, who
have yet to recover from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, are
suffering from the ripple effects of ongoing conflicts in terms of
prices, food and fertilizer supplies, as well as the climate emergency.
Without a massively scaled up humanitarian response that has at its core
time-sensitive and life-saving agricultural assistance, the situation
will likely worsen in many countries in the coming months,? said FAO
Director-General QU Dongyu.
