The IPC Acute Food Insecurity report for Guatemala should be presented to the authorities of SESAN, the President of the Republic of Guatemala, the Inter-institutional Technical Liaison Committee (CTI)...
In the latest IPC Acute Food Insecurity analysis, the 17.4 million inhabitants of all 22 departments of Guatemala were analysed.
Between March and May 2022, more than 3.9 million people were experiencing high levels of acute food insecurity (IPC Phase 3 or above) and therefore require urgent actions. This figure is expected to increase to 4.6 million people in the period of June to September 2022, during which the lean season falls, and to decrease to 3.2 million people for the period of October 2022 to February 2023, the harvest season.
Due to the crisis generated by the conflict between Ukraine and Russia, a sustained increase in the prices of food and fuel as well as some inputs is expected. Therefore, between June and September 2022, households will likely face greater difficulties in terms of food availability and access, and their food insecurity situation could deteriorate during this period. Between October 2022 and February 2023, an increase in employment sources derived from coffee and sugarcane crops is expected; there could be greater marketing opportunities, so the food insecurity situation could improve for a good part of the country’s departments.
