Highlights of the food security situation in Africa

The food security situation on the continent
in the first semester of 2012 was
overshadowed by a looming food and
humanitarian crisis in the Sahel due to
drought. This came on the heels of the crisis
in the Horn of Africa in the previous year,
when 12 million people required
humanitarian assistance and famine was
declared in Somalia. Even though famine
conditions no longer exist in Somalia, nearly
one-third of the population was reported to
be in crisis during the first quarter of 2012,
unable to fully meet essential food and nonfood
needs.
