CrisisWatch N°133 - 1 September 2014

The fight for control of Libya between the Misrata-led Islamist-leaning coalition and the Zintan-led forces is escalating by the day. Hundreds have been killed and thousands displaced in over six weeks of clashes and heavy artillery fire. The Misrata side emerged victorious in the battle over Tripoli’s international airport, taking control of the capital, and made advances around Benghazi, but the larger political divide remains unresolved.

Price Watch August 2014 Prices

KEY MESSAGES

  • In West Africa, staple food markets were well-supplied in July, despite the slight delay in the start of the rainy season in some areas of the Sahel. Markets are generally functioning as they normally do during the lean season. Staple food prices were stable or declining, except in deficit areas of Niger and Chad. Record-high rice and wheat imports from international markets reinforced food availability in Senegal and Mauritania (Pages 3-6).

Afrique de l’ouest Perspective de la sécurité alimentaire - juillet à décembre 2014

Retour des conditions typiques saisonnières de sécurité alimentaire sauf dans les zones de conflit

MESSAGES CLES

  • 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.

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.

Climate Prediction Center’s Africa Hazards Outlook August 21 – August 27, 2014

  • Increased rains observed in West Africa during the past observation period.

  • Consistent heavy rains triggered flooding, destroyed houses, and thousands of displaced people in Sudan.

1) Inadequate rainfall distribution since early June has delayed planting and negatively affected crop development in northeastern Nigeria. Although an increase in rainfall was observed recently, continued favorable rainfall amounts are needed to overcome long-term deficits.
