Application of the Livelihood Zone Maps and Profiles for Food Security Analysis and Early Warning

Download the Report

Famine early warning involves the analysis and communication of hazard events, the effects of those events on different variables (economic, production, policy, etc.), and how those variables influence food security outcomes for specific populations. In essence, famine early warning is a form of disaster risk analysis.

Occasionally, FEWS NET will publish a Special Report that serves to provide an in-depth analysis of food security issues of particular concern that are not covered in FEWS NET’s regular monthly reporting. These reports may focus on a specific factor driving food security outcomes anywhere in the world during a specified period of time. For example, in 2019, FEWS NET produced a Special Report on widespread flooding in East Africa and its associated impacts on regional food security.
