FOOD SECURITY SNAPSHOT
Conflict escalation and displacements resulted in serious disruptions in market, trade and livelihood activities, exacerbating already precarious food insecurity situation in the country
2015 cropping season has coincided with escalation of conflict thus compromising outcome
More than half of Yemen’s population (61 percent out of 25.9 million people) is estimated in need of humanitarian assistance
More than $8 million needed to support farmers during crucial cropping season
15 April 2015, Rome - Amidst escalating conflict at a crucial time in the country’s cropping season, almost 11 million people in Yemen are severely food insecure and millions more are at risk of not meeting their basic food needs, FAO said today.
FAO has further raised its estimate of the 2014 world cereal production and its forecast for global cereal stocks. Early prospects for cereal supplies in 2015/16 are mostly favourable, partly sustained by large stocks accumulated over the previous two seasons.
FAO’s first forecast for global wheat production in 2015 indicates a likely small contraction, mostly reflecting an expected decline in Europe from last year’s record output.

General Situation during December 2014 Forecast until mid-February 2015
Swarms laying eggs on Red Sea coast in Sudan
During the first week of December, groups of adults and swarms were seen laying eggs on the Red Sea coast of Sudan near Port Sudan, Suakin and in the Tokar Delta. Groups of adults were also present along the central coastal plains between Port Sudan and Tokar and on the southern coastal plains near Aiterba and Karora, close to the border of Eritrea. Control operations treated 7,000 ha during the first week of the month, of which 6,200 ha were by air.
World cereal production in 2014 is forecast to surpass last year’s record, boosting stocks to a 15-year high.
Maize export prices increased significantly in November supported by lower than previously expected yields of the 2014 crop in the United States of America. Wheat export prices strengthened in general, while rice quotations declined. Overall, however, cereal export prices persisted at levels below those of a year earlier, reflecting ample global supplies.
