Famine Early Warning Systems Network

The Famine Early Warning Systems Network is a leading provider of early warning and analysis on food insecurity. Created by USAID in 1985 to help decision-makers plan for humanitarian crises, FEWS NET provides evidence-based analysis on some 35 countries. Implementing team members include NASA, NOAA, USDA, and USGS, along with Chemonics International Inc. and Kimetrica.

See the FEWSNET Global LIS7 tool for monthly outputs. See the FLDAS-CA/GDAS product for Central Asia outputs.

Note: CHIRPS-FINAL simulations are re-run for July 2022 and new data available as of Aug 31. Due to issues with MERRA2 data availability, initial run was conducted with GDAS forcing. Re-run with MERRA2 forcing completed on Aug 31. 

SMAP data is not available for evaluations after Aug 7 2022 due to outage of SMAP satellite instrument problems.
