General Situation during February 2015 Forecast until mid-April 2015
Afghanistan: Heavy snowfall has caused avalanches in northern, central and eastern Afghanistan; 280 people have died. Panshir province is most affected. Communication lines have been disrupted in places, power supplies to Kabul have been cut. Priority needs are for NFIs and emergency shelter; access to isolated areas is difficult.
Sorghum, wheat flour and Belem rice are the most important food commodities. Sorghum flour and Belem rice are most commonly consumed commodities in urban areas. Wheat flour mixed with sorghum flour is also purchased for the production of local pancakes, an important staple food for poor and middle-income households. Over 65 percent of the total population for Djibouti lives in and around Djibouti City, the capital, making this market the most important for understanding food security conditions. Dikhil is the second largest city and it supplies the rural communities in and around the city.
Des améliorations limitées par l’arrêt précoce de Heys-Dadaa dans les zones du Sud
Dans la plupart des zones pastorales du pays la situation de la sécurité alimentaire est stable par rapport au mois dernier, cependant les bonnes pluies de Heys/Dadaa se sont interrompues en Décembre ce qui a limité les améliorations attendues.

Snapshot 18-24 February 2015
Myanmar: 90,000 people are now reported to have been displaced by continuing violence between government troops and multiple armed groups in Kokang, Shan state. Aid organisations have been subject to attack – seven people were wounded in two separate incidents.
Japan - The Japanese Government has committed additional funds to support IOM’s operations in the face of increasingly complex humanitarian crises.
From its “supplementary budget FY2014,” the Japanese Government will avail a total of US$31.5 million to support IOM activities for vulnerable migrants, internally displaced persons, returnees and affected communities.
Journée Mondiale de l’Alimentation
La Journée Mondiale de l’Alimentation est célébrée le 16 Octobre 2014 à travers la planète.
Le thème retenu cette année par l’Organisation Mondiale pour l’Alimentation et l’Agriculture (FAO) était « L’Agriculture Familiale : nourrir le monde, préserver la planète », et rend directement hommage aux agriculteurs familiaux et à leur contribution à l’amélioration de la sécurité alimentaire.
Snapshot 11–17 February 2015
Myanmar: Fighting between the Myanmar army and the MNDAA, an insurgent group in the Kokang area of Shan state, displaced tens of thousands of people. Some fled into central Myanmar, while between 30,000 and 50,000 are thought to have crossed into Nansan, Yunnan province, China.
This brief summarizes FEWS NET’s most forward-looking analysis of projected emergency food assistance needs in FEWS NET coverage countries. The projected size of each country’s acutely food insecure population is compared to last year and the recent five-year average. Countries where external emergency food assistance needs are anticipated are identified. Projected lean season months highlighted in red indicate either an early start or an extension to the typical lean season.
Conflict and unfavourable climatic conditions remain the main drivers of food insecurity and displacement in the Eastern Africa region. Despite growing humanitarian needs, a difficult global humanitarian financing climate has forced humanitarian country teams in the region to prioritize response plans.
Humanitarian operations are continuing despite political instability and intermittent violence in parts of Yemen.
61 per cent of Yemenis (almost 16 million out of 25.9 million people) need humanitarian assistance.
Humanitarian partners aim to assist 8.2 million people in 2015 (32 per cent of the total population).
The high tensions in Marib and Al Bayda have had limited humanitarian impact so far.
Snapshot 4–10 February 2015
Guinea: An increase in Ebola case numbers has been reported for the second consecutive week. Resistance to the response remains high in Forecariah, worst affected by the outbreak; though ten prefectures have reported at least one incident of resistance. Clashes between armed forces and the community were reported in Matoto, Conakry.
Natural disasters can hit developing countries with an economic force that can roll back development gains and exacerbate inequality.
To ensure development efforts are sustainable, the World Bank-managed Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR) is scaling up disaster risk management efforts and building resilience in vulnerable countries.
Djibouti has made significant progress in raising primary school enrollment to around 60% of all school-age children, but girls, the rural population and the poor are still being left behind.
A new World Bank program, funded by the Global Partnership for Education, aims to support ongoing government efforts to expand school enrollment in rural areas.
Current programs are delivering results, but Djibouti will need to broaden their scope to achieve 100% enrollment.
LES POINTS MARQUANTS
Les progrès que Djibouti a réalisés dans l’accroissement de la scolarisation au primaire sont remarquables : environ 60 % des enfants en âge d’aller à l’école sont désormais inscrits. Cependant, les filles, les populations rurales et les plus démunis sont toujours laissés pour compte.
Un nouveau programme de la Banque mondiale, financé par le Partenariat mondial pour l’éducation, viendra appuyer les efforts déployés par le gouvernement pour accroître le nombre d’élèves scolarisés en milieu rural.
Snapshot 28 January – 3 February 2015
DRC: 30,000 refugees have fled CAR for Equateur province since December. In North Kivu, 18,000 new IDPs need humanitarian assistance; another 21,000 are in need in South Kivu. Nationwide, food security is worsening: over one-third of territories are in Crisis or Emergency phases.
