Syria crisis: Food shortage warning from UN WFP and FAO

Published on 02 August 2012

Over the next year, up to three million people are expected to be in need of food, crop and livestock assistance. (..) The UN says the economic losses are grave, but the humanitarian implications are far more pressing. (..) "The effects of these major losses are first, and most viciously, felt by the poorest in the country. Most of the vulnerable families the mission visited reported less income and more expenditure - their lives becoming more difficult by the day," said WFP Representative and Country Director in Syria Muhannad Hadi.
