CrisisWatch N°134 - 1 October 2014

The U.S. expanded its aerial campaign against Islamic State (IS) militants in late September with strikes in Syria’s north and east. The operation, which targets both IS and fighters linked to al-Qaeda’s central leadership and the affiliated group Jabhat al-Nusra, risks alienating other rebel groups in Syria and strengthening support for IS.

West and Central Africa Region Weekly Regional Humanitarian Snapshot (25 September - 01 October 2014)

CENTRAL AFRICAN REPUBLIC (CAR)
7 PER CENT DECLINE IN IDP FIGURES IN BANGUI
Internal displacement figures continue to decline with an estimated 62,579 IDPs living in 35 sites in Bangui as of 23 September – a seven per cent decrease since last month. According to WFP, the rainy season is causing logistical constraints that, coupled with insecurity, are delaying and/or impeding food distributions.

Tchad Mise à jour sur la sécurité alimentaire - septembre 2014

Des signes d’amélioration de la securité alimentaire dans les régions en crise alimentaire

MESSAGES CLÉS

  • Dans la zone soudanienne, l’accès aux aliments des ménages s’est nettement amélioré grâce aux bonnes pluies de juillet/août qui ont permis la récolte précoce du maïs, sorgho et l’arachide comme en année normale. La bonne disponibilité laitière et l’augmentation des revenus issus des prémices ont aussi contribué à augmenter la consommation alimentaire dans ces zones durant le mois de septembre.

Price Watch September 2014 Prices

Key Messages

  • In West Africa, staple food markets were well-supplied in August, with carryover stocks and early grain, tuber, and legume harvests. Staple food prices were stable or declining, except in deficit areas of Niger, Chad, and Mauritania and conflict-affected areas of northeastern Nigeria. The Ebola outbreak has led to both official and voluntary restrictions on the movement of goods and people in affected countries, resulting in atypical market trends in some areas.
