In Indonesia, food prices tend to rise before and during Ramadan, especially for chicken meat, eggs and onion, reflecting the increased seasonal demand during the fasting month.
Price fluctuations stress food and nutrition security of the most vulnerable households who spend a large proportion of their expenditures on food. At national level, 62 percent of Indonesian households can afford the least expensive nutritious diet, meaning that even without seasonal price increases, 4 out of 10 Indonesians cannot afford a balanced and nutritious food.
WFP and the National Agency for Meteorology, Climatology and Geophysics (BMKG) signed a programme document to collaborate on food security data collection and analysis on 14 March. The collaboration focuses on strengthening the Government’s capacity to minimise the disruption to food security of weather extremes through timely and actionable analysis. The document is a subsidiary agreement to the Country Programme Action Plan signed by the Government and WFP in August 2016.
