Report of a meeting
27–28 February 2014, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
The Accelerating Nutrition Improvements in sub-Saharan Africa (ANI) project was launched in March 2013, supported by Canada’s Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development (DFATD). The project aims to:
• support 11 countries in sub-Saharan Africa1 to strengthen nutrition surveillance systems;
As has been found in previous food security assessments, there continues to be widespread household food insecurity across Karamoja. The low agricultural productivity across Karmoja is a well-documented fact.
The overall objective of this post-harvest assessment was to determine the level of crop and livestock production and output in Karamoja during the 2013 season and the resultant implications for the current and projected food security situation in the region in 2014.
Une équipe OCHA a effectué une mission d’évaluation dans le Haut-Mbomou, ils ont discuté de mécanisme de coordination des actions humanitaires et civilo-militaire avec la RTF à Obo.
Les points saillants de la situation générale de la zone :
• Following improved security conditions, pastoralists have returned to the pre-protected kraal system seasonal grazing patterns, being free to carry-out traditional management practices inherent to the right to roam, with consequent better access to pasture and water.
• Despite a two-dekad dry spell in May-June, rainfall performance has been generally good along the season, with positive effects on grazing resources availability as confirmed by satellite-based data showing above long-term average vegetation growth across the region.
An interagency meeting held on 3rd Jan 2014 at Office of the Prime Minister recommended for an interagency mult-sectoral assessment mission to the influx areas. Because of the nature of the emergency, it was agreed that the team split into three. One team for Adjumani and Elegu transit another team for Arua/Koboko/Kiryandongo and another Team to Acholi sub region.
This analysis was compiled at a workshop held at Ridar Hotel - Seeta Mukono, from 25 to 28 November 2013. It was attended by 50 participants: 30 from Districts representing all regions of Uganda, and 20 members of the IPC Technical Working Group representing relevant NGOs, UN Agencies and Ministries that handle food security, water and sanitation, health and nutrition related activities.

I. PRESENTATION DE LA ZONE ET DU CONTEXTE
Province : Nord Kivu
Territoire : Beni
Chefferie : Watalinga
Groupement : Bawisa
Localité : Nobili
Distance : à 71 km à l’Est de Mbau sur l frontalier de Kasindi sur l’axe Mpondwe
La situation sécuritaire dans la zone Kamango reste volatile mais, elle est plus ou moins calme dans celle de Nobili. La zone est contrôlée par le 2ème bataillon du 801ème Régiment des FARDC basée à Mutwanga.
La présence des FARDC dans la zone rassure tant soit peu la population déplacée se trouvant à Nobili mais, celle-ci voudrait voir l’armée loyaliste progresser sur la ligne de front et faciliter leu retour dans leurs villages de provenance.
The Joint Assessment Mission (JAM) conducted in September 2012 aimed at obtaining a better understanding of the situation, needs, risks, capacities and vulnerabilities of refugees in Malawi with regard to food, livelihood, their nutritional/health situation and related matters. The current programme is coming to an end, and this JAM Report aims to provide information for further assistance through the design of a new programme cycle for both WFP (the PRRO) and UNHCR. The last JAM was carried out in 2009 in coordination with the GoM and other stakeholders.

This bulletin covers 66 countries for the period July to September 2011 (Q3-2011). It examines trends in staple food prices, fuel prices, cost of the food basket, terms of trade and consumer price index (CPI) at the country level. Price data are now available at http://foodprices.vam.wfp.org. This issue also focuses on the current humanitarian crisis in Somalia and its implications.
More than 20 years of armed conflict between the rebel Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) and the Ugandan government displaced more than 1.7 million people and stalled development in northern Uganda’s Acholiland. Over the past several years, peace has returned to the region, and more than 90% of internally displaced people (IDPs) have returned to their villages of origin or locations close to home. The peaceful reintegration of returnees as well as the development of the region is undermined, however, by ongoing conflict over land.
