Household food security expected to improve with prospects of improved harvests region wide
• Extreme dryness from December 2016 to February 2017 affected the clove and coffee producing region of the eastern coast from Fenerive-est to Manakara (less than 30 percent of average rainfall). Rice producing regions of central western Madagascar received 30-40 percent of average rainfall. This will affect small farmer incomes from crop sales, in addition to labor incomes, and may also affect trade flows and price levels throughout the country.
The Global Early Warning – Early Action (EWEA) report on food security and agriculture is developed by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO).
The report is part of FAO’s EWEA system, which aims to translate forecasts and early warnings into anticipatory action.
Dryness continues to worsen over the Horn of Africa
Africa Weather Hazards
Below-average rainfall since late February have resulted in moderate to locally strong moisture deficits, which have already negatively impacted agricultural and pastoral activities in many parts of southern South Sudan, Kenya, Ethiopia, southern Somalia, and northern Tanzania.
• Improved vegetation conditions across Southern Africa increase likelihood of aboveaverage harvests
• USAID partners provide assistance to cyclone- and drought-affected populations
• USAID/OFDA provides nearly $1.6 million to UNICEF to help address nutrition and WASH needs in southern Madagascar
Vue d’ensemble de la situation
Le cyclone tropical intense Enawo a traversé Madagascar entre le 7 et le 10 Mars. Il est entré par le NordEst du pays à une vitesse d’environ 300 km par heure. Environ 434 000 personnes ont été sinistrées par son passage.
Le 14 Mars 2017 le Gouvernement de Madagascar a déclaré la situation d’urgence dans le pays. Les autorités nationales, notamment le Bureau National de Gestion des Risques et Catastrophes (BNGRC), coordonnent la réponse humanitaire dans les zones affectées.
Tropical cyclone ENAWO made landfall in Antalaha district, in the north-east of Madagascar on 7 March. WFP has responded to the emergency by distributing High Energy Biscuits and food baskets to victims of the cyclone in most affected northeastern, south-eastern districts as well as the capital Antananarivo.
In March, WFP continued its drought emergency response to meet the needs of disaster-affected communities through food and cash-based unconditional assistance and nutrition support.
THE PRESIDENT’S MALARIA INITIATIVE STRATEGY FOR 2015–2020
The PMI Strategy for 2015–2020 takes into account the progress over the past decade and the new challenges that have arisen, setting forth a vision, goal, objectives, and strategic approach for PMI through 2020, while reaffirming the longer-term goal of a world without malaria. Malaria prevention and control remains a major U.S. foreign assistance objective, and this strategy fully aligns with the U.S. Government’s vision of ending preventable child and maternal deaths and ending extreme poverty.

When Cyclone Enawo struck north eastern Madagascar on the morning of March 7, travelling at 200 to 300 km per hour, the country and its people were prepared and a number of measures were put in place to limit losses.
However, the wind damages and the widespread flooding left behind by the cyclone severely affected the livelihood of the people of the north-east.
WaPOR: database dissemination portal and APIs
The FAO portal to monitor Water Productivity through Open access of Remotely sensed derived data (WaPOR) monitors and reports on agriculture water productivity over Africa and the Near East.
It provides open access to the water productivity database and its thousands of underlying map layers, it allows for direct data queries, time series analyses, area statistics and data download of key variables associated to water and land productivity assessments.
Projected food assistance needs for October 2017
Résumé de la situation
Le cyclone tropical Enawo est entré par le district d’Antalaha, au Nord-Est de Madagascar, région de SAVA, le mardi 07 Mars et est sortie du territoire malgache la nuit du jeudi 09 mars 2017 par la pointe du Sud de l’île.

Bruxelles, le 11 avril 2017
L'aide de l'UE de 47 millions d'euros contribuera à répondre aux besoins des populations les plus vulnérables dans les régions des Grands Lacs, d'Afrique australe et de l'océan Indien.
Maize price trends were mixed in February in the region. Tanzania and the DRC saw significant month-on-month (m-o-m) price increase of their main staple. Zambia and especially Tanzania registered the highest increase in the number of markets in ALPS Crisis.
Rainfall remains well below-average during peak rainy season in the Horn of Africa
Africa Weather Hazards
Light, uneven rainfall since late February has resulted in moderate to locally strong moisture deficits in many parts of southern South Sudan, Kenya, Ethiopia, southern Somalia, and northern Tanzania.
As funding for the Flash Appeal - budgeted at $20.1 million – comes in, humanitarian partners are able to scale up response activities to respond to the most critical needs of those most affected by Cyclone Enawo – the number stabilised at 434,000, with 58 districts out of 119 reporting damages. To date, the appeal is 45% funded but it will be revised at the end of this month in order to cover the humanitarian needs for the next six months, based on results of sectoral assessments that have been completed or are currently on-going.
Tropical storm ENAWO-17 has formed in the Southern Indian Ocean north-east of Madagascar. It is moving south-west and is currently foreseen to make landfall early 7 March on the north-eastern coast of Madagascar as a very intense cyclone, with extreme rainfalls and maximum storm surge height of one meter.
ENAWO-17 is predicted to have a high humanitarian impact based on the maximum sustained wind speed, the potentially affected population (up to one million people) and their vulnerability.
The UN Under-Secretary-General and Emergency Relief Coordinator (USG/ERC) and the Malagasy Permanent Representation at the UN re-launched the Flash Appeal on ENAWO on 28 March in New York, with the participation of the Malagasy Prime Minister, various Ministers and the UN Resident Coordinator for Madagascar via videoconference.
