Food Assistance Outlook Briefs

Every month, FEWS NET publishes a Food Assistance Outlook Brief (FAOB) that summarizes our most forward-looking analysis of projected food assistance needs in the 30 countries we monitor. A related briefing event is also held on a monthly basis to share these findings with decision-makers.

Monthly Food Assistance Outlook Briefs

FEWS NET’s monthly Food Assistance Outlook Briefs (FAOBs) provide projected estimates of the population in need of humanitarian assistance in each FEWS NET-monitored country seven months into the future, as well as a projection of anticipated acute food insecurity outcomes (the highest IPC area-level classification). This product compares projected food assistance needs to the same time of the previous year and the five-year average in each country.
