IOM Zimbabwe publishes first bulletin on Impact of the Ukraine Crisis in Zimbabwe
The International Organization for Migration (Zimbabwe), the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and the World Food Programme have published the joint monitoring report on the Impact of the war in Ukraine on Zimbabwe. This is the first of three monthly reports made possible through the support of the SDG Fund Development Emergency Modality initiative in response to the global crisis on food, energy and finance. A comprehensive study will be produced at the end of the year.
The report presents analysis based on data gathered through existing monitoring systems in Zimbabwe, namely IOM’s Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM), WFP’s HungerMap LIVE and Harmonized Markets Monitoring, and FAO’s Data in Emergencies (DIEM). It aims to address the existing information gaps on the potential impacts of the war in Ukraine and other global stressors on rising food prices, food security, access to essential needs and agricultural inputs, and migration patterns in Zimbabwe. This joint analysis will contribute to generate critical information to guide the development of an anticipatory action strategy that presents short- to long-term policy and programmatic recommendations, which will be led by the Government of Zimbabwe, with the support from FAO.
