fightfoodcrises.net, February to May 2022.
The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations
(FAO) and the World Food Programme (WFP) warn that acute food
insecurity is likely to deteriorate further in 20 countries or situation
(including one region) – called hunger hotspots – during the outlook
period from February to May 2022.
Ethiopia, Nigeria, South Sudan and Yemen remain at the highest alert
level from the previous edition of this report. In their last available
assessments, these countries all had parts of populations identified
or projected to experience starvation and death (Catastrophe,
Integrated Food Security Phase Classification [IPC] Phase 5), requiring
the most urgent attention.
