Linking seasonal forecasts into RiskView to enhance food security contingency planning

Hansen, James W.; Tippett, Michael K.; Bell, Michael A.; Ines, Amor Valeriano M.

RiskView is a tool developed by the World Food Programme (WFP) to translate weather data
(real-time and historical) and other spatial information (e.g., crops, drought risk, population, etc.)
into food security needs and response costs. It serves as a swift way of estimating costs in
advance of food insecurity outlooks for financial planning, and for facilitating better resource
allocations to disasters before on-the-ground needs assessments are produced.
