Global early warning – early action report on food security and agriculture January – March 2018
The Global Early Warning – Early Action System (EWEA) report on food security and agriculture is developed by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) through its EWEA. The system aims to translate forecasts and early warnings into anticipatory action.

ON WATCH: Nigeria – northeast (conflict), Afghanistan (conflict and dry spells), Madagascar – southern (worsening food insecurity due to consecutive below-average seasons), DPR Korea (economic impact of sanctions), Syria (conflict and restricted humanitarian access), Sudan (localized dry spells), Sahel (drought), Central African republic (intensified conflict affecting livelihoods and causing internal displacement), Mongolia (impact of drought and potential severe winter conditions), Africa – Fall Armyworm (further spread of Fall Armyworm) and La Niña (floods and cyclones)
