This Archive contains shapefiles for FEWS NET Food Security Outlook for West Africa.
It was last updated on January 14, 2013. The classification used is IPC V2.0 Compatible, aimed to address acute food insecurity.
The two shapefiles represent the two analytic periods:
xx201304_ML1 Most likely food security outcome for January-March 2013
xx201304_ML2 Most likely food security outcome for April-June 2013
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)
