This bulletin examines trends in staple food and fuel prices, the cost of the basic food basket and consumer price indices for 69 countries in the fourth quarter of 2015 (October to December). The maps on pages 6–7 disaggregate the impact analysis to sub-national level.
• During Q4-2015, FAO’s global cereal price index fell by a further 15.2 percent year-on-year because of abundant supplies and sluggish demand. The index returned to the level seen before the food price crisis of 2007-08.

This report sets out the risks to food security in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) from climate change, and how these vulnerabilities interact with other key trends and sources of risk, including population growth, urbanisation, and conflict.
In response to catastrophic flooding in the Sahrawi refugee camps in Tindouf, Algeria, the United States announces a contribution of more than $4 million in humanitarian assistance to help meet the acute needs of Sahrawi refugees. This new contribution includes support for the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, the World Food Program, and the UN Children’s Fund. These funds will be used to support the reconstruction of shelters, schools, and health clinics. They will also help replace food rations that were destroyed by the flooding.
ALGER - En raison d'un manque de financement, les réfugiés du Sahara occidental vivant en Algérie reçoivent maintenant, pour le troisième mois consécutif, une ration réduite qui ne satisfait pas leurs besoins quotidiens minimaux. Les réductions surviennent alors que la crise des réfugiés sahraouis entre dans sa 40e année.

• Les opérations de rapatriement des migrants nigériens de l’Algérie se poursuivent.
2015 FUNDING OUTLOOK
"We are raising as much, or more, as we’ve ever raised. Our traditional donors are as generous as ever.
It’s that the number of crises is outpacing the generosity. We need those who have given to us to give more. And we need more donors to support the gap.” WFP Executive Director Ertharin Cousin, speaking in August 2015 to Philanthropy Age magazine.
ALGIERS – As a result of insufficient funding for the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP), refugees from Western Sahara living in Algeria are now receiving, for the third consecutive month, a reduced ration that does not meet the minimum daily needs. The cuts come as the Sahrawi refugee crisis enters its 40th year.

A. Situation analysis
Description of the disaster
Heavy rains and flooding affected the south-west Algeria's arid Tindouf region on Friday 23 October 2015. The heavy rains have caused widespread damage to all five camps sheltering 90,000 of the most vulnerable Sahrawi refugees.
Summary of WFP assistance:
Slow start to rainy season in southern Africa, flooding risks remain in Guatemala, Somalia, and Ethiopia
Africa Weather Hazards
Persistently below average rainfall since August over several bimodal areas of Côte d’Ivoire,
Ghana, Togo, Benin, and Nigeria has led to an increase in moisture deficits and a degradation of ground conditions, resulting in drought.
23 October 2015 – The United Nations refugee agency and its partners are scaling up aid efforts after devastating floods widely damaged Sahrawi refugee camps in southwest Algeria, working to provide food and relief supplies, while urgently appealing for emergency funds to fill the 80 per cent gap in order to reach the most vulnerable.
