Populations classified in Crisis (IPC Phase 3) include poor urban and rural households in the deficit-producing southern region, some parts of the northern, and central districts. These areas experienced floods and later, earlier than normal, tailing off rainfall, leading to localized production shortfalls, which exacerbated slow livelihood recovery from previous seasons and impacts of COVID-19 on remittances. (...) Key drivers Flooding: In northern Malawi, parts of Rumphi and Karonga districts experienced flooding and waterlogging that damaged crops. Dry spells: In southern Malawi, Nsanje and Chikwawa districts, as well as parts of Phalombe, Balaka, Mwanza, Neno, Zomba, and Chiradzulu districts, had localized dry spells and experienced early cessation of rainfall, which resulted in localized below-average production.

12 Top 26 Preliminary Findings Manifestations of online violence 1 Nearly three quarters (73%)7 of our survey respondents identifying as women said they had experienced online violence. 2 Threats of physical violence (identified by 25% of survey respondents) including death threats, and sexual violence (identified by 18%) also plagued the women journalists we interviewed. And these threats radiated: 13% of survey respondents and many interviewees said they had received threats of violence against those close to them, including children and infants. 3 One-fifth (20%)8 of survey respondents identifying as women said they had been attacked or abused offline in connection with online violence they had experienced. A similar proportion of our interviewees also experienced offline abuse associated with online attacks, including the subjects of both of our big data case studies. 4 Racism, religious bigotry, sectarianism, ableism9, homophobia and transphobia intersect with misogyny and sexism to produce significantly heightened exposure and deeper impacts for women experiencing multiple forms of discrimination concurrently, as evidenced by our survey respondents and interviewees, and detailed in our big data case study on Maria Ressa. 5 Black, Indigenous, Jewish, Arab and lesbian women journalists participating in our survey and interviews experienced both the highest rates and most severe impacts of online violence. 6 Online violence against women journalists verges from large-scale attacks or extreme threats at a moment in time, through to the slow burn of networked gaslighting, which involves constant lower level abuse. 7 Expressed as a percentage of 625 woman-identifying respondents who answered this question. 8 Expressed as a percentage of 596 woman-identifying journalists who responded to the question. 9 Discrimination in favour of able-bodied people i.e. those who do not have disabilities. 13 Impacts of online violence 7 Physical threats associated with online violence caused 13% of women survey respondents to increase their physical security; 4% said that they had missed work due to particular concerns about the attacks moving offline and resulting in physical violence.

Only a few countries experienced an increase in collective bargaining coverage between 2000 and 2016 (such as Belgium, France and Italy), or experienced almost no change (eight among the 28), while all other countries saw their collective bargaining coverage decline (almost all countries being below the zero horizontal line in Figure 1). Moreover, almost all countries have experienced a 10 per cent or more decline in union membership, with many countries experiencing a decline above the 50 per cent mark: the results indeed show an overall weakening of industrial relations among the EU28. (...) The countries that experienced some weakening of their industrial relations systems during the crisis have also experienced the most substantial decline in their labour and social indicators.
