34 countries don't have enough food for their people due to conflicts: UN

34 countries don't have enough food for their people due to conflicts: UN
11 March 2016 Current Affairs: Thirty four countries nearly 80% of them in Africa don't have enough food for their people because of conflicts,drought and flooding, according to a UN report.The Food and Agriculture Organisation's Crop Prospects and Food Situation report yesterday said conflicts in Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, and the Central African Republic have taken a heavy toll on agricultural production, worsening the humanitarian crisis in those countries.And the impact of these conflicts extends to neighbouring countries that are hosting refugees, straining food resources in those countries, it said.Congo is not only dealing with almost 100,000 refugees from Central African Republic but conflict in the east where an estimated 1.5 million people are displaced and flooding related to El Nino which has affected about half a million people, the report said.FAO said drought associated with El Nino has "sharply reduced" 2016 crop production prospects in southern Africa. It said dry conditions linked to El Nino may also affect the planting of crops for the main growing season in areas of Central America and the Caribbean for the third consecutive year.Dry conditions have also lowered expectations for harvests this year in Morocco and Algeria, the report said.FAO also warned that drought and floods in North Korea in 2015 "sharply decreased" food crop production in the early and main growing seasons."With a reduced harvest in 2015, the food security situation is likely to deteriorate compared to the situation of previous years, when most households were already estimated to have borderline or poor food consumption rates," the report said.The number of countries needing outside food assistance grew from 33 in December, after the addition of Swaziland where El Nino-associated drought conditions have sharply lowered 2016 cereal crop production prospectsOther countries on the FAO list facing food shortages are Zimbabwe, Burkina Faso, Chad, Djibouti, Eritrea, Guinea, Liberia, Malawi, Mali, Mauritania, Niger, Sierra Leone, Burundi, Republic of Congo, Ethiopia, Kenya, Lesotho, Madagascar, Mozambique, South Sudan, Sudan, Swaziland, Uganda, Afghanistan, Myanmar and Nepal.
