UNITED NATIONS Online Fenty Puma Rihanna Suede Creepers Nere Marrone , March 9 (Xinhua) -- Thirty-four countries, including 27 in Africa, are currently in need of food assistance due to drought, flooding and civil conflicts, a UN spokesman said here Wednesday, citing a report released by the UN food agency.


The Food and Agriculture Organization's (FAO) released its the new edition of the quarterly Crop Prospects and Food Situation report early in the day.


"Drought associated with El Nino has sharply reduced 2016 crop production prospects in Southern Africa, while expectations for the harvest in Morocco and Algeria have been lowered due to dry conditions In Offerta Fenty Puma Rihanna Suede Creepers Tutte Nere ," Farhan Haq, the deputy UN spokesman, said at a daily news briefing.


"Also in areas of Central America and the Caribbean, ongoing dry conditions linked to El Nino may affect sowings of the main season crops for the third consecutive year," Haq said. "The report also warns that last year's reduced production would negatively impact the food security situation in the Democratic People's Republic of Korea."


Swaziland is the country newly added to the list which included 33 countries last December.


"Elsewhere, the outlook for the 2016 crops already in the ground is generally favorable," Haq said. "Early forecasts indicate large 2016 wheat crops in most countries of Asia."


The UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) is expected to release a new global analysis of the humanitarian impacts of the El Nino phenomenon Italia Fenty Puma Rihanna Suede Creepers Grigie Marrone , he said.


The number of major droughts recorded globally in 2015 was more than double the ten-year average, due to a severe El Nino weather event, Robert Glasser, the special representative of the UN secretary-general for disaster risk reduction, told reporters here in mid-February.


The effects of the droughts are still being felt with millions of people who are experiencing hunger from Ethiopia, in Eastern Africa, to Papua New Guinea Offerta Fenty Puma Rihanna Suede Creepers Verde Rosse , in Oceania, Glasser said,


El Nino -- which means the Little Boy in Spanish -- and its sister La Nina -- the Little Girl -- are weather events, which contribute to changes in climate and weather.


"While the 2015-2016 El Nino has now passed its peak, according to the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), it will continue to have very serious impacts on vulnerable people for months, including through droughts Vendita Fenty Puma Rihanna Creepers Velvet Nere , flooding and an increased chance of tropical cyclones," Haq said.


"The four regions most in need of humanitarian support are East Africa, Southern Africa, the Pacific Islands and Central America," the spokesman said. "Countries across each of these regions have declared states of emergency."


The FAO report said that drought associated with El Nino has "sharply reduced" 2016 crop production prospects in Southern Africa, while expectations for the harvest in Morocco and Algeria have been lowered due to dry conditions.


Also in areas of Central America and the Caribbean, ongoing dry conditions linked to El Nino may affect sowings of the main season crops for the third consecutive year.


Moreover Nuove Fenty Puma Rihanna Creepers Velvet Rosse , FAO stressed that persistent conflicts in Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, and the Central African Republic have taken a heavy toll on the agricultural sector, further worsening the humanitarian crisis in those countries.


In most cases, the impact of conflict extends into neighbouring countries such as Cameroon and the Democratic Republic of Congo that are hosting refugee populations Acquista Fenty Puma Rihanna Creepers Velvet Grigie , said the report.


In several countries already in need of external assistance for food, the report said that conditions generally worsened in the past three months, mainly in the Southern Africa sub-region, where food prices have reached record highs.


ATHENS, Sept. 26 (Xinhua) -- The 32nd annual ultra-marathon race Spartathlon from Athens to Sparta, one of the most demanding long distance courses internationally, kicked off in front of the Acropolis hill in the Greek capital on Friday morning.


This year 380 runners from 43 countries and regions are competing air max 97 undefeated italia , following the footsteps of ancient Greek soldier Pheidippides in the 246 kilometers distance race to the southern Peloponnese peninsula city of Sparta.


In 490 BC, ahead of the battle of Marathon against the Persian forces, according to historians, the Athenian soldier who inspired the Classic Marathon was sent to Sparta to request support, making the journey on foot non stop within two days.


Since 1983 each September people of various ages and professions from across the globe who test the limits of human willpower revive his feat.


The target on their mind is to reach the statue of ancient Spartan King Leonidas in the center of Sparta.


Only about a third of participants complete Spartathlon, the organizers of the International Spartathlon Association note. Out of a total 333 runners from 35 countries who participated last year only 148 people crossed the finish line, including eleven women.


The tough ground conditions through steep hillsides and the strict time limits make it one of the greatest challenges for runners.


The award of those who make it and touch the feet of Leonidas' statue is an olive wreath and a sip of water from the nearby Evrotas river.


But their biggest award is the joy of testing yourself offerte scarpe nike air max 97 , passing the test and inspiring other people to never give up and keep trying on and off the course, in sports and everyday life.


Among the runners who took their positions at the starting point at the foothill of the Acropolis on Friday this year were famous runners such as Greek-American Dean Karnazes who has finished 50 marathons across 50 states in the United States in 50 weeks. It will be his first participation in this historic track.


This year's participants also include veterans of Spartathlon who have won the race in previous years, like Portuguese Joao Oliveira who won in 2013 completing the race at 23 hours, 29 minutes and 8 seconds.
