by George Harris

A recent assessment of Liberia’s food security status, dubbed “Liberia Food Security Assessment,” finds that 1.6 million households in the country go to bed without any meal in a day. Three percent of the 1.3 million households, according to the assessment, are severely food insecure and 38 percent of households are marginally food insecure, and these households can relapse into food insecurity depending on further shocks like a flood, and or an outbreak of a new pandemic.
