Food Security Outlook Forum (FSO)

To address these risks, the Climate Outlook Forum (COF) which feeds into the Food Security Outlook (FSO) process has been developed as a user-developed tool for the Greater Horn of Africa. This service strengthens the links between early warning information and effective response by translating seasonal climate information and early warning data into projected food security conditions. The information produced through these services provides the context for decision-making, and is therefore mainly targeted at disaster risk managers.
