COVID-19 Pandemic Impacts on Food Security
COVID-19 is one of a number of drivers of acute food insecurity, including, but not limited to, conflict, macroeconomic shocks, weather shocks, pest outbreaks, etc. The outcomes displayed on the map result from these multiple shocks. By clicking on a country, you can learn more about COVID-19’s specific impact.
FEWS NET's analyses incorporate the short- and longer-term impacts of COVID-19, alongside other shocks, to estimate cumulative current and future impacts on acute food insecurity among households in the geographies we monitor. This page presents these analyses and key associated data and information.
