The Regional Focus is the result of a close collaboration with IGAD (Inter-Governmental Authority on Development), a regional economic community (REC) that forms one of the building blocks of the African Union and is comprised of eight Member States, namely Djibouti, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan and Uganda. IGAD seeks to assist and complement the efforts of its Member States, through increased cooperation, to achieve food security and environmental protection, peace and security, and economic cooperation and integration.
The IGAD regional report is a by-product of the annual Global Report on Food Crises (GRFC). It provides a comprehensive assessment of acute food insecurity and malnutrition in the IGAD’s member states, including major food crises, trends over time, key drivers, populations of highest concern, and forecast of peak estimates of acute food insecurity based on a rigorous methodology and a highly consultative process. The report serves as a key reference for governments, policy makers, and development and humanitarian actors in their efforts to tackle the root causes of food crises in the region.
