What is it?

The GRFC is a global food security analysis that enhances coordination between various partners and informs decision–making on resource allocation, planning and implementation of humanitarian and resilience actions.

The report aims to instigate and inform better decision-making to increase resilience for the food security of the world’s most vulnerable people and “to ensure that no one is left behind” (High-level Political Forum on Sustainable Development, 2016).

The report is designed to:

  • Summarize available data and analysis from global, regional and national food security monitoring systems;
  • Add value by bringing together this complex data and information to provide an accurate, comprehensive, transparent assessment of existing food security analysis;
  • Identify key data and analytical gaps; and
  • Drive improved coordination and informed planning and implementation for humanitarian and resilience-building initiatives.

Through the Integrated Phase Classification (IPC) and the Cadre Harmonisé (CH) – its key information sources – the GFRC provides in-depth analysis of countries that are chronically vulnerable to food crises and have large proportions of their population facing acute severity of food insecurity.

Main findings of Global Report 2017

Globally, 108 million people in 2016 were reported to be facing Crisis level food insecurity or worse (IPC Phase 3 and above). This represents a 35 percent increase compared to 2015 when the figure was almost 80 million. Ten of the main food crises – i.e. with more than 1 million people facing acute severity of food insecurity – were driven by conflict. El Niño and other natural disasters were also major factors of acute food insecurity across the world. In 2016 the situation was particularly critical in Yemen, in Northeaster Nigeria and in Somalia where the risk of Catastrophe (IPC Phase 5) was high, and in South Sudan where famine was declared in early February 2017.

Monitoring food security in countries with conflict situations: A joint FAO/WFP update for the United Nations Security Council (January 2018)

This report provides an overview of the food security situation in conflict-affected countries and to provide regular monitoring of the food security situation in the countries currently being monitored by the United Nations Security Council (UNSC). The analysis takes into consideration the complexity of conflict and illustrates its impact on the four pillars of food insecurity: availability, access, utilization and stability. The negative impact of conflict on food security, nutrition and agriculture is uncontested and globally recognized.
