- Mostly near-average conditions have been observed across West Africa during this past week.
- Heavy rain continues for portions of southern Ethiopia and Somalia, raising flooding concerns in East Africa.
1) Poorly distributed rainfall has resulted in drought, which has severely impacted ground conditions and already led to livestock death across parts of north-central and eastern Ethiopia.
Heavy rains have continued for far western Gulf of Guinea, while much drier conditions prevailed farther east across West Africa.
Heavy rain continues for portions of East Africa raising flooding concerns.
1) Poorly distributed rainfall has resulted in drought, which has severely impacted ground conditions and already led to livestock death across parts of northcentral and eastern Ethiopia.
Abnormally wet conditions are continuing for several nations in the western Gulf of Guinea region
Moisture deficits worsen further in southeast Sudan, Eritrea and parts of Ethiopia with a continued lack of rainfall.
$16,7 MILLIARDS NÉCESSAIRE POUR AIDER 27,5 MILLIONS DE PERSONNES
Le 8 décembre, la communauté humanitaire a lancé un appel de 16,7 milliards de dollars pour aider 57,5 millions de personnes en 2015. Les crises en RCA, Irak, au Soudan du Sud et en Syrie, et leur impact régional resteront des priorités humanitaires. Cet appel n’inclut pas encore les plans de réponse stratégiques des neuf pays du Sahel qui seront lancés en février 2015. Ce qui va augmenter le nombre de personnes à aider et les besoins financiers pour 2015.
$16.7 BILLION NEEDED TO HELP 57.5 MILLION PEOPLE ACROSS THE WORLD
- 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.
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.
- Below-average rains observed across western Sahel during late July.
- Wetness continues in Eastern Africa.
1) Since early June, seasonal rainfall has been both suppressed and infrequent across northeastern Nigeria leading to a strengthening of moisture deficits. While there is a chance for some relief with increased rainfall forecast during the upcoming outlook period, anomalously dry ground conditions are expected to persist, which still may negatively impact developing crops later into the season.
Torrential rains impacted coastal Cote D’Ivoire during the past week.
An increase in rain was observed across dry areas in northwestern Ethiopia and southeastern Sudan
1) Heavy and above-average rains since May have oversaturated the grounds of southern Mali and lead to rainfall surpluses greater than 200% of normal in some locations. With heavy rain forecast during the next outlook period, the risk for new flooding across the region will be increased.
After a week of heavy rain, rains across bi-modal West Africa were light and below-average.
Anomalous heavy early-season rainfall was observed across much of Mozambique.
Some relief to dryness is expected across the Gulf of Guinea region during the end of September.
1) A pronounced late start of seasonal rainfall in July has delayed planting by approximately one month and has reduced crop yields across many parts of Sudan. The onset of continuous seasonal rainfall during mid to late September now remains critical for several local areas that have planted late.
A favorable distribution of rainfall was observed across a wide portion of Africa during the past week.
1) A delayed start of the rainfall season across northwestern Ethiopia, southern Eritrea, and bordering areas in Sudan has negatively impacted cropping activities, including planting. After this past week’s heavy rainfall, moderate rains are forecast during the next outlook period, which could help to alleviate dryness over the region.
