  • Une longue sécheresse entre juin et début juillet a occasionné des pertes non négligeables de semis et une prolongation de la soudure pastorale au Sahel notamment au Tchad, au Niger, en Mauritanie et au Sénégal. Cependant, depuis la mi-juillet, la situation pluviométrique s’est normalisée favorisant un bon développement des cultures et des pâturages.

Climate Prediction Center’s Africa Hazards Outlook August 28 – September 3, 2014

  • Above-average rains observed over the Sahel during the past week.
  • Slightly reduced rains recorded in Sudan during the past observation period.

1) Below-average rains during the Belg season and a late onset of the Kiremt rains have led to persistent moisture deficits, which have delayed planting and negatively affected the development of already-planted crops over the Arsi and West Arsi zones in central Oromia of central Ethiopia.

West Africa Seasonal Monitor - August 22, 2014

Generally good cropping conditions for much of the Sahel, except over Senegal and Mauritania

Key Messages

  • There is a low level of skill in forecasting the remainder of the season over Senegal and Mauritania, though available information suggests average rainfall levels for the remainder of the season. Persistent dryness over northern Senegal and southwestern Mauritania earlier in the season, though, has the potential to significantly reduce rainfed crop harvests.

Severe dryness persists in Latin America and Haiti, with flooding in Sudan and South Sudan

  1. Since early June, seasonal rainfall has been below average and infrequent across northeastern Nigeria, leading to growing moisture deficits.
