Karan/Karma rains slowly begin but do not fully restore pasture and livestock conditions

Key Messages

  • In cumulative terms, Djibouti benefited from above-average Diraac/Sugum rains, which improved pasture, livestock body conditions, and productivity. However, following two years of El Niño-related dryness, especially in the Southeast Pastoral zone (Dikhil and Ali Sabieh) and in pastoral areas above Obock, pasture conditions have not been fully restored. The Karan/Karma rains started in July but so far have been below-average.

Heavy rains may lead to flooding in East and West Africa, dryness persists in Central America

  1. Consistent and above average rain over the past few weeks has led to moisture surpluses throughout much of Eastern Africa. Torrential rain is forecast to continue over western Sudan and the highlands of Ethiopia and Eritrea, which is likely to raise the River Nile and Al Gash River levels further and potentially result in flooding over many areas of Sudan during the next week.
