Will a Major El Niño Event Disrupt Village Food Production in Papua New Guinea in 2015?

Allen, Bryant


The Australian Bureau of Meteorology has predicted an El Niño event in the Pacific Ocean later in 2015. Large El Niño events have previously caused severe disruptions to village food production in Papua New Guinea (PNG), resulting in widespread hardship and hunger. This In Brief considers the possible impacts of a 2015–16 El Niño and suggests what can be done to address them.
