deterioration in acute food insecurity across Sudan, and parts of the country face a risk of Famine (IPC Phase 5).

An estimated 14.3 million people are in IPC Phase 3 (Crisis) and about 0.3 million people are in IPC Phase 4 (Emergency).

IPC Alert - Sudan, March 2024

The food security and nutrition situation in Sudan has deteriorated significantly amidst escalating conflict, raising major concern. The IPC analysis released in December 2023 projected that, between October 2023 and February 2024, 17.7 million people in Sudan (37% of the population) faced high levels of acute food insecurity (IPC Phase 3 or above), of which 4.9 million (10%) were in IPC Phase 4 (Emergency). The unprecedented levels of acute food insecurity recorded by the IPC in 2023 have been driven by the devastating conflict that engulfed the country.

Security threats, roadblocks and protection concerns limit both the humanitarian response and assessments. Due to data gaps in hotspot areas and connectivity challenges, the Sudan IPC Technical Working Group (TWG) has not been in a position to update the IPC analysis released in December 2023. Consequently, this alert has been developed based on the review of the latest evidence available and issued to express major concern regarding the deteriorating situation; and advocate for stakeholders to act immediately to prevent famine. Since this IPC exercise, there has been a significant escalation of the conflict among armed factions and a rise in organized violence beyond the initial IPC assumptions made in previous analyses.

IPC Alert - Somalia, February 2024

Despite improvements, almost 1 In 5 Somalis face high levels of acute food insecurity; 1.7 million children likely to suffer from acute malnutrition.
Heavy rainfall, flooding across Somalia, exacerbated by lingering effects of previous droughts have driven 4 million (21% of population) to IPC AFI Phase 3 or worse (Crisis or Emergency) between January and March 2024. Of these, 3.2 million people (17 percent of the population) are in IPC AFI Phase 3 (Crisis), and around 800,000 people (4 percent of the population) are experiencing worse conditions in IPC AFI Phase 4 (Emergency).

IPC Alert - Sudan, February 2024

Food assistance needs in Sudan are rapidly accelerating due to the recent expansion in fighting between the Sudan Armed Forces (SAF)
and the Rapid Support Forces (RSF) into the southeast. Sudan is now expected to have the third highest share of the population in need
among FEWS NET’s monitored countries in 2024. The opening of this new front is further disrupting trade and agricultural activities in
Sudan’s breadbasket, posing a significant threat to national food availability.
