Key Messages

  • Food security conditions over most parts of Southern Africa remain satisfactory and conditions are expected to remain so throughout the Outlook period. The projected average to above-average maize harvests are assessed to be sufficient to meet the region’s requirements for the next six months and beyond.

  • Current reports indicate that household food access has improved and increased on-farm food supplies have eased the pressure on local markets. Prices have stabilized, and in some cases, started dropping.

14 May 2012 description

Harvesting of the 2011/12 main season cereal crops is underway across Southern Africa and is expected to continue until June/July. Current crop prospects point to a slight decrease in maize production (the main food staple) compared to 2011, following a contraction in the area planted and a protracted dry spell in early 2012.
