    This map illustrates the satellite-detected surface waters extent and evolution in Central and Eastern Quang Nam Province, Vietnam, as observed from the Sentinel-1 images acquired on 07 November 2016 and 01 December 2016. Within the analysed zones representing 75% of the total province area, an increase of surface waters extent was observed between the 07 November 2016 and 01 December 2016. ~26,200 ha of surface water were observed the 07 November 2016 and reached ~39,000 ha the 01 December 2016. All over the analysed area, it corresponds to an evolution of about 50 % : Thang Binh District (+5,300 ha), Nui Thanh District (+2,800 ha), Tam Ky Township (+1,530 ha) and Phu Ninh District (+1,140 ha). This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR - UNOSAT.

    This map illustrates the satellite-detected surface waters extent and evolution in Ha Tinh Province, Vietnam, as observed from the Sentinel-1 images acquired on 12 and 24 October 2016. An increase of surface waters extent was observed from the 24 October 2016 image: ~26,400 ha of surface water were observed the 12 October 2016 and reached ~30,700 ha the 24 October 2016. All over the analysed zone, it corresponds to an evolution of about 16%. More specifically, in Tri River (Song Tri) lake and dam an increase of 177 ha was observed. For Ke Go Lake and dam, an evolution of 30% of the total surface water was observed in between the 12 October and the 24 October 2016. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR - UNOSAT.

    This map illustrates the satellite-detected surface water evolution of Dinh Binh Lake, Vinh Thanh District, Binh Dinh Province, Vietnam, as detected by Sentinel-1 images acquired on 26 October 2016 and 07 November 2016. An increase of surface water extent was detected in the 07 November 2016 image, particularly in the upstream part of the lake : ~500 ha of surface water were observed the 26 October 2016 and reached ~930 ha the 07 November 2016 corresponding to an evolution of about 85%. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR - UNOSAT.

    This map illustrates the satellite-detected surface waters extent and evolution in north of Quang Binh Province, Vietnam, as observed from the Sentinel-1 images acquired on 12 and 24 October 2016. Within the analysed area, an increase of surface waters extent was observed from the 24 October 2016 image: ~4,400 ha of surface water were observed the 12 October 2016 and reached ~6,400 ha the 24 October 2016. All over the analysed zone, it corresponds to an evolution of about 45%. As example, in Tien Lang lake and dam an increase of water surface of 77 ha was observed corresponding to an evolution of ~70% by comparison to the water surface detected on 12 October 2016. This is a preliminary analysis and has not yet been validated in the field. Please send ground feedback to UNITAR - UNOSAT.

    This dataset contains a list of the countries affected by the El Niño as at April 21, 2016 as reported jointly by FAO, the Global Food Security Cluster and WFP on 21 April 2016 in the 2015-2016 El Niño: WFP and FAO Overview update. According to the World Bank, El Niño is likely to have a negative impact in more isolated local food markets, and many countries are already facing increased food prices. Food Security Cluster partners have implemented preparedness activities and are responding in countries where the effects of El Niño have materialised, such as Ethiopia, Papua New Guinea, Malawi and throughout Central America. In Southern Africa, many areas have seen the driest October-December period since at least 1981, and some 14 million people in the region are already facing hunger, which adds to fears of a spike in the numbers of the food insecure later this year through 2017.
