Introduction and Needs

The El Niño coastal phenomenon, triggered by the increase in sea surface temperature, has caused continuous rainfall in February and March and has led to 12 departments and one constitutional province, particularly on the northern coast, being declared under emergency. The number of people affected and severely affected1 from this event is over one million. According to official forecasts, the El Niño coastal phenomenon could continue until the end of April with moderate magnitude. As a result of this situation, the state of emergency would continue and the number of the severely affected people would increase. 

The national Government has led the response efforts through national coordination mechanisms. Throught the interagency Peru Flash Appeal (April - October 2017), IOM and humanitarian partners aim to strengthen and support the response efforts led by the GoP in areas facing the emergency, with particular emphasis on the northern coastal regions.
