Food and nutrition outlook, June-August 2020

Publié : décembre 2019

By June-August 2020, 14.4 million people (5.4%) are projected to be in a crisis situation or worse, including 1.2 million in an emergency situation (phase 4). The security situation has weakened people’s livelihoods by increasing their exposure to severe food and nutrition insecurity, particularly in the Lake Chad basin, the Liptako-Gourma area and northern Mali. Civil insecurity has led to a sharp increase in the number of displaced persons in northern Burkina Faso, in the border areas between Niger and Nigeria and in northeastern Nigeria. Trade flows are severely disrupted by insecurity and internal displacement in affected areas. Beyond immediate assistance for populations in crisis (phase 3) and emergency (phase 4) situation, RPCA members recommend to conduct preventive interventions for populations under pressure (phase 2) to support their livelihoods and strengthen their resilience. This includes facilitating access to agricultural inputs and implementing social safety net projects for vulnerable populations.
