This Archive contains shapefiles for FEWS NET Food Security Outlook for East Africa.
It was last updated on July 17, 2014. The classification used is IPC V2.0 Compatible, aimed to address acute food insecurity.
The two shapefiles represent the two analytic periods:
eastafrica201304_ML1 Most likely food security outcome for April-June 2014
eastafrica201304_ML2 Most likely food security outcome for July-September 2014
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:
