Afghanistan facing desperate food crisis

October 26, 2021 - More than half the population of Afghanistan – about 22.8 million people – will face starvation this winter unless urgent action is taken, the UN World Food Programme (WFP) has warned.

The combined impacts of drought, conflict, Covid-19 and the economic crisis, have severely affected lives, livelihoods, and people’s access to food, the WFP said.

The Integrated Food Security Phase Classification (IPC) report found that more than one in two Afghans will be facing crisis (IPC Phase 3) or emergency (IPC Phase 4) levels of acute food insecurity through the November 2021 to March 2022 lean season, requiring urgent humanitarian interventions to meet basic food needs, protect livelihoods and prevent a humanitarian catastrophe.
