ABSTRACT

Marked progress in the ability to predict famines in the Sahel and Horn of Africa since the mid 1980s has not resulted in parallel improvements in famine prevention. A certain naivety has characterised the quest, by donors and governments, for ever more sophisticated famine early warning systems (EWS). The implicit assumption has been that better and more timely information can automatically help to neutralise the conflicts of interest which surround famine relief. But information can do little to reconcile such differences and has a high political value, especially when its exploitation is tied to the allocation of scarce resources. The coincidence of war and famine in much of Africa raises the political stakes of famine early warning information and its use even higher. More... »
