At a Glance: Famine Conditions in Nigeria, Somalia, South Sudan and Yemen
20 million people are facing the threat of famine over the next 5 months, and 1.4 million children are at risk of starvation in South Sudan, Yemen, Somalia, and Nigeria. These crises are all man-made and conflict-driven, characterized by massive population displacements, both internally and across borders. These critical food insecurity conditions further strain the international aid system that is struggling to respond to the largest humanitarian crisis since World War II, affecting 130.2 million people world-wide.
InterAction has collected an array of online resources– including press statements, letters, blog articles, and policy briefs– from across its membership to provide an informational platform for members of the press, policymakers, the NGO community, and others working on responses to the famine-related crises.
InterAction members who would like to contribute material can post their content via the membership login page. Additional information on how to contribute blogs, events, and member news can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
