Food Crisis Risks
This section presents information-and decision-support tools to strengthen the ability of policymakers, food policy experts, and researchers to respond quickly to dynamic developments in the world food system.
Here you can find the latest information on current food crises through the Global Report on Food Crises, information from across Early Warning Systems, a control panel for real-time monitoring of food crisis risk factors, and the Excessive Food Price Variability tool where you can track daily updates in food price volatility.

The 2022 Global Report on Food Crises (mid-year update) highlights that by September 2022, the population in the three highest phases of acute food insecurity increased again to 201.4–205.1 million people, making 2022 the fourth consecutive year of rising levels of acute hunger.

Early Warning Hub
The Early Warning Hub brings together information from across Early Warning Systems in one place. Early Warning Systems (EWS) alert to the presence of food crises and related drivers, informing decision makers and saving lives.
Control Panel for Risk Monitoring
The control panel for real-time monitoring of risk factors is an innovative tool that brings together information on various drivers of food crises, including conflict and climate-related shocks.
Excessive Food Price Variability Early Warning System
The Excessive Food Price Variability Early Warning System is a tool of the Food Security Portal that identifies periods of excessive price variability (i.e. price variability that exceeds a pre-established threshold), and it is updated on a daily basis to identify days that are within periods of high, moderate, and low price variability.
