Document Language:
The 5th edition of the Hunger Hotspots report provides the results of a joint FAO-WFP early warning analysis of acute food insecurity hotspots, highlighting countries that are at risk of significant food security deterioration for the outlook period February to May 2022. According to the report, acute food insecurity is likely to deteriorate further in 20 countries or situations – hunger hotspots. Organized violence or conflict remain the primary drivers, followed by weather extremes and climate variability. The COVID-19 pandemic continues to disrupt economies. High food prices and low household purchasing power are major economic concerns for food insecurity rising. The report provides country-specific recommendations on priorities for emergency response and anticipatory action to address existing humanitarian needs and ensure short-term protective interventions before new needs materialize.
