So far in September, there have been 15 attacks against aid workers, including break-ins into premises of aid organizations. In August, 34 incidents of insecurity were reported throughout the country, a third of which targeted humanitarian workers.

Following a brief period of suppressed rainfall, Guatemala registers heavy precipitation during the last week

Continued adequate moisture conditions raise hopes for average to above-average harvest

Key Messages

  • The Intertropical Front (ITF) started its southward retreat in early September but it remains either at or north of its average position, which could mean a normal to longer growing period.

  • From early July until mid-September, mostly average to above-average rainfall that has been well-distributed over time has fallen throughout most of the region (Figures 1 and 2), which is ensuring good growing conditions.

21 Sep 2016 description

Highlights

  • WFP has a 6-month net funding requirement totaling USD 16.8 million for both the PRRO and CP. Without additional resources, WFP will be forced to suspend its operations at the end of September leaving over 416,000 vulnerable Mauritanians in need of food and nutritional assistance. Moreover, if no additional funding is received, WFP will be forced to further reduce its food and nutritional assistance to Malian refugees.

PROJECTED FOOD ASSISTANCE NEEDS FOR MARCH 2017

17 Sep 2016 description

Key Messages

  • The average to good development of crops across the country increases the chance of above average production as result of rains greater than the ten year average, and the availability of agricultural inputs. However, the loss of agricultural land as a result of flooding will negatively affect levels of agricultural production, especially in the riverine regions of Gao, Tombouctou and Mopti.
