Ethiopia

A severe food security and nutritional crisis is unfolding as a consequence of the drought that began in October 2016. The Somali region is most affected and is experiencing Emergency (IPC Phase 4) levels of food insecurity. Catastrophe (IPC Phase 5) outcomes are likely to manifest in poorer households by September. While harvests this month will improve food access for a short period, the expected below average yield will result in the current food insecurity situation persisting until January 2018. 7.8 million people are currently receiving food aid and this number is expected to rise to 15 million in the second half of 2017.

DPRK

A severe food security and nutrition situation is unfolding in DPRK. Prolonged dry weather conditions from April to late June in the main central and southern cereal-producing provinces has led to significant drought.  If rains do not improve soon, the 2017 cereal output may decrease significantly. Immediate humanitarian interventions are needed to support the affected farmers and prevent negative coping strategies for the most vulnerable households.

Chad

The living conditions of 73,000 returnees from CAR in the southern regions as well as the capital N'Djamena are worsening due to deteriorating shelter conditions, a lack of access to NFIs, a decrease in humanitarian organisations operating on returnee sites (from 57 in 2015 to 24 in 2017), and insufficient food access during the lean season. As a result, returnees are resorting to negative coping mechanisms such as prostitution, forced marriage, and child labour.
