The food security of at least 60 million people has been affected globally, weighing heavily on WFP operations and responses into next year. Concerns are growing about a La Niña event materializing in the second half of 2016. Although this may eventually bring much-needed rains to some parts of the world late this year, La Niña is forecast to bring drier-than-average conditions that could lead to drought in parts of Eastern Africa, including Somalia and Kenya into 2017.  WFP in Action Climate Change Logistics Swaziland English Africa Asia Video News Release Climate Change Droughts Logistics Wed, 06 Jul 2016 09:33:50 +0000 WFP 649991 at http://www.wfp.org 10 Facts About Hunger In Swaziland http://www.wfp.org/stories/10-facts-about-hunger-swaziland Here are ten facts that give the measure of the hunger situation in Swaziland, which faces extremely high human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) rates.
