Monthly Risk Briefing: February
18 February 2019
The monthly risk briefing provides information on global weather, human and health events where members may consider using the Start Fund Anticipation process.
The monthly risk briefing reports on new, emerging or deteriorating situations; therefore, ongoing events that are considered to be unchanged are not featured and risks that are beyond the scope and scale of the Start Fund are also not featured. It is collated by the Start Network Anticipation team using information from academia and research institutes, government departments, ACAPS, global risk indexes, risk information provided by Start Members and their partners, and the media. Key risks are shared and collated each month with FOREWARN input.
What is high priority this month?
Food insecurity in Sudan: Poor macroeconomic conditions persist, increasing commodity prices which is restricting livelihoods and food security.

Violence food insecurity: Elections in February and March risk increasing violence and displacement in areas across Nigeria, which could negatively impact food production.
