World Food Programme launches online version of Africa RiskViewer

The World Food Programme (WFP) has made available an online version of the Africa RiskView software platform that aims to quantify and monitor weather-­related food security risk in Africa. To date it focuses on drought, but inclusion of other weather risks is planned. Africa RiskView translates satellite-­based rainfall information into near real-­time impacts of drought on agricultural production and grazing.

World Food Programme (WFP) in Burkina Faso

With a population of 14 million (as per Census 2006 data), of whom 43.9 % lives below the poverty line, and almost half is under 15, Burkina Faso is classified as both a least developed country and a low-income, food-deficit country. As the United Nations frontline agency in the fight against hunger, the World Food Programme (WFP) is continually responding to emergencies.
