Estimations mondiales de l’insécurité alimentaire aiguë en 2017
• Environ 124 millions de personnes vivant dans 51 pays sont en situation d’insécurité alimentaire de Crise ou pire (Phase 3 ou pire de l’IPC ou du CH ou équivalent) et requièrent une action humanitaire urgente afin de sauver des vies, protéger les moyens d’existence et réduire les déficits de consommation alimentaire et la malnutrition aiguë.
Acute food insecurity global estimates in 2017
• Around 124 million people in 51 countries face Crisis food insecurity or worse (equivalent of IPC/CH Phase 3 or above). They require urgent humanitarian action to save lives, protect livelihoods, and reduce hunger and malnutrition.
86% of the total population in the country is minimally food insecure (IPC Phase 1). The households in this phase have access to a variety of adequate and nutritious food both from household stocks carried forward from first season 2017 and the on-going harvests from the second season, which are good in most areas of the country because of favourable rains received. Food in markets is easily accessed and affordable because prices have declined and the households have adequate purchasing power.
SUMMARY OF CAUSES, CONTEXT AND KEY ISSUES
The IPC is a set of protocols (tools and procedures) to classify the severity of food insecurity and provide actionable knowledge for decision support. The IPC consolidates wide-ranging evidence on food-insecure people to provide core answers to the following questions: How severe is the situation? Where are areas that are food insecure? How many people are food insecure? Who are the food-insecure people in terms of socioeconomic characteristics? Why are the people food insecure?

September to December (SOND) constitutes an important rainfall season over the equatorial sector of the Greater Horn of Africa (GHA) region. The regional consensus climate outlook for the September to December 2015 rainfall season indicates increased likelihood of above normal to near normal rainfall over most of the equatorial parts of the GHA. Increased likelihood of near to below normal is indicated over much of the northern sector.
This IPC food insecurity analysis on Karamoja district of Uganda, compiled from 22 to 26 June 2015, gives a snapshot in time of the current severity of the situation, regardless of the causes, context, or duration.
East and Central Africa Region was the staring point for the worldwide implementation of IPC. Currently, most of the countries in the Region conduct IPC Acute Food Insecurity Analyses, including: Burundi, Central African Republic, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Djibouti, Kenya, Rwanda, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan, Tanzania, and Uganda.

This analysis was compiled at a workshop held at Ridar Hotel - Seeta Mukono, from 25 to 28 November 2013. It was attended by 50 participants: 30 from Districts representing all regions of Uganda, and 20 members of the IPC Technical Working Group representing relevant NGOs, UN Agencies and Ministries that handle food security, water and sanitation, health and nutrition related activities.
The objectives of the analysis were:
The IPC Team is happy to announce the publication of the second Issue of the new IPC Newsletter, which has been redesigned to include feature stories, as well as regular briefing sections of regional IPC news updates and upcoming IPC events.
• 1.2 percent of the population is in phase 3 (crisis) with food consumption gaps, high GAM rates, and are marginally able to meet their minimum food needs through accelerated depletion of assets. These include the poor and destitute households in Karamoja and Acholi regions, those affected and displaced by the flooding in the Elgon and Western Uganda.
Key Outcomes for the Area
Food Consumption: The population in this region is stressed (phase 2). Households are currently rationing food consump-tion due to declining food stocks at household level. 9-15% of the population will suffer deficits for a duration of 1.2 months.
Livelihood Change: The number of livestock seems to have significantly decreased in the agro-pastoral by 21-52% and pastoral zones by 27-58% in 2012, compared with 2008.
