• This report considers present and recent past food security assessments for Afghanistan in the context of hydrology, climate change and conflict. Population comparisons by data source (UN OCHA, LandScan, WorldPop, and Gridded Population of the World) and rainfall anomalies from 2013-2016 accompany the report. The authors, Zainab al Badri, Atia Curtiss, and Zoe Garcia, completed their research in partial fulfillment of Public Health coursework in Medical Geography, for Spring 2017, at Drew University. Dr. Lisa Jordan edited the report and supplemented their work with additional spatial data.

    Kenya’s commitment to close down Dadaab by mid-2017, the world’s largest refugee camp hosting over 300,000 Somalis, is putting increasing pressure on service delivery and infrastructure in Somalia. By October 2016, an estimate of 31,226 Somali people have returned from Kenya, the majority of which are heading to Kismayo, Baidoa, Luuq and Mogadishu. While the caseload of returnees is expected to continue growing over the coming months, there is no clear understanding of movement patterns of returnees or internally displaced persons which further complicates the attempts by humanitarian organisations to provide for required services. The absence of a CCCM cluster in Somalia means that information on humanitarian needs and gaps has been limited to ad-hoc and un-coordinated assessments. The Kismayo IDP settlement assessment was triggered as a result of the need for a multi-cluster, area-based and coordinated information approach for humanitarian planning and service delivery in informal IDP settlements in Somalia. The Kismayo IDP Settlement Assessment was carried out with financial support from USAID-OFDA and ECHO and in close collaboration with clusters (WASH, Shelter & NFIs, Education, Food Security, Health, Nutrition and Protection).

    South Sudan Integrated Food Security Phase classification and population by state and County. The Integrated Food Security Phase Classification (IPC), also known as IPC scale, is a tool for improving food security analysis and decision-making. It is a standardized scale that integrates food security, nutrition and livelihood information into a statement about the nature and severity of a crisis and implications for strategic response. The IPC was originally developed for use in Somalia by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization's Food Security Analysis Unit (FSAU). Several national governments and international agencies, including CARE International, European Commission Joint Research Centre (EC JRC), Food and Agricultural Organization of the United Nations (FAO), USAID/FEWS NET, Oxfam GB, Save the Children UK/US, and United Nations World Food Programme (WFP), have been working together to adapt it to other food security contexts

    Hotspot woreda classification is derived using six multisector indicators, including agriculture and nutrition, agreed at regional and federal levels. A hotspot matrix is often used as a proxy for the acute Integrated Phase Food Security Classification (IPC) and is indicative of food security and nutrition status. Hotspot woredas require urgent humanitarian response.

    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.

The two shapefiles represent the two analytic periods: EA201304_ML1 Most likely food security outcome for January-March 2016 EA201304_ML2 Most likely food security outcome for April-June 2016 Within the shapefiles, the food security outlook is contained in a field named as ML1 or ML2 according to the outlook period. The code itself is the IPC phase. Two additional codes are used: 66 = water 88 = parks, forests, reserves 99 = missing data (usually urban centers)
