FOOD SECURITY SNAPSHOT
- Slightly below average production of 2016 secondary “belg” season crops
- Favourable prospects for 2016 main “meher” season crops
- Cereal prices are generally at high levels
- Number of people in need of assistance slightly declines, but food insecurity remains high
Production of 2016 secondary “belg” crops slightly below average
Rainfall has remained persistently above average in Sudan, western and northern Ethiopia and western South Sudan since mid-August, leading to a continuation of good cropping and livestock conditions, but also flooding in localized areas.
In central and southern Ethiopia, southeastern South Sudan, and much of Uganda, rainfall has been below average since mid-August. Seasonal rainfall deficits, particularly in SNNPR and central and eastern Oromia in Ethiopia, are leading to prospects for belowpaverage crop production in some areas.
The Opportunities Industrialization Centers Ethiopia (OIC Ethiopia) has graduated more than 500 refugees trained in various Technical and Vocational Education (TVET) fields.
More than 95 per cent of the graduates were Eritreans while Yemenis and South Sudanese also made part of the graduating migrants.
The graduates received trainings in electrical installation, auto mechanics, computer, tailoring and hair dressing fields.
The Center partnered with the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) in offering the TVET trainings.
On 12 August, the Government of Ethiopia launched the revision of the joint Government and partners’ Humanitarian Requirements Document (HRD). The revised HRD estimates that 9.7 million people in Ethiopia will be in need of emergency food assistance until the end of the year. This is a decrease from the 10.2 million people estimated at the beginning of the year. Similarly, the estimated number of children that require treatment for severe acute malnutrition (SAM) in 2016 decreased from 458,000 to 420,000.
741,288 refugees registered in the country

When South Sudan attained its independence in July 2011, after decades of devastating civil war, many hoped that to be a new beginning and a bright future for the children of the new country. But that new day never came; the hope didn’t last even for a couple of years. Since December 2013, civil war has disrupted the lives and education of hundreds of thousands of children. And there is no end in sight as last year’s peace agreement is under threat after renewed fighting.
ADDIS ABABA – The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) has today received confirmation of a contribution of €4 million (more than US$4.3 million) from the Federal Republic of Germany towards the food needs of refugees sheltered in Ethiopia.
