Global early warning: early action report on food security and agriculture: January - March 2018
The Global Early Warning – Early Action (EWEA) report on food security and agriculture is developed by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO). The report is part of FAO’s EWEA system, which aims to translate forecasts and early warnings into anticipatory action. EWEA enables FAO to act early before disasters have happened and to mitigate or even prevent their impact. By lessening damages to livelihoods and protecting assets and investments, FAO can help local livelihoods become more resilient to threats and crises while, where possible, addressing their root causes. The Global EWEA report is a quarterly forward-looking analytical summary of major disaster risks to food security and agriculture.
