FAO: "Unprecedented" threat from famine in four countries

03.03.2017 08:02 "Agro Perspectiva" (Kyiv) The threat of famine facing four countries simultaneously is «unprecedented», UN Radio says referring to the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) Assistant Director-General Kostas Stamoulis report. As to Stamoulis, the formal declaration of famine within some parts of South Sudan, and threat facing northern Nigeria, Somalia and Yemen, «demands swift action». As to him, the four countries affected needed immediate food assistance but also «livelihood support» to try and prevent the threat of famine from reappearing. He made his appeal following the publication of FAO latest Crop Prospects and Food Situation Report on this week Thur. The Report indicates that although food supplies are robust around the world, access to food has been «dramatically reduced» in areas suffering from civil conflicts. And that is especially true within East Africa, where drought conditions are adding to increasing food insecurity. As to the Report, of the 38 countries in need of outside help to feed their people, 28 are within Africa, what can be partially explained with the effects of last year El Niño weather pattern, which had driven continental drought. Agricultural production is expected to improve within the southern Africa, but fighting within many other parts will add to displacement and hunger for many.
