Afghanistan has been experiencing an exceptional food insecurity condition in 2020 and 2021.  A report by the Afghanistan National Statistics and Information Authority and Ministry of Agriculture, Irrigation, and Livestock indicates that 16 provinces are experiencing severe negative impacts of La Niña events and below average precipitation on the agriculture sector. According to the IPC (Integrated Food Security Phase Classification) report, between November 2020 and March 2021, around 13.15 million people (42% of the total population) have been experiencing high levels of acute food insecurity.   In addition to the chronic underlying factors (including armed conflicts and unemployment/underemployment) of food insecurity, COVID-19 has further exacerbated the situation and escalated the level of food insecurity in Afghanistan.  In view of the humanitarian situation, IFRC has allocated 500,000 Swiss francs from DREF to enable the Afghan Red Crescent Society to initiate a response operation, through provision of emergency food security assistance to 3,500 drought affected households for four months To scale up the response and incorporating the flood response, IFRC has launched an Emergency Appeal seeking around 15 million Swiss francs to support the Afghan Red Crescent Society, to reach 280,000 people over the next 15 months with the focus on food assistance, livelihood protection and restoration, and community-based sanitation and hygiene promotion
