A report on the Northern Triangle from December 2016, on the zika virus in February 2016, and the drought in September 2015 is available in the Special Reports tab of this window. 

Guatemala suffered from drought from 2015- 2016, with over 900,000 people classified as food insecure. This, along with gang-related protection concerns made Guatemala a Situation of Concern in ACAPS' Global Emergency Overview. However, drought effects subsided in the second half of 2016, with only 110,000 classified as food insecure in December 2016. This led to the categorisation of Guatemala as No Severity in the Global Emergency Overview. The crisis analysis is no longer updated, but ACAPS continues to monitor Guatemala on a daily basis.
