An estimated 1.25 million people will be acutely food insecure and require humanitarian assistance over the next six months until February 2017. The main contributory factors are the below-average performance of the 2016 long rains, characterised by poor temporal and uneven spatial distribution, livestock and crop pests and diseases, resource-based conflicts, terror-related threats, especially in areas bordering Somalia, human-wildlife conflicts, and high food prices in certain areas.
Poursuite d’une résurgence en Mauritanie et possible développement d’une autre résurgence au Soudan
Une résurgence du Criquet pèlerin se poursuit dans l’ouest de la Mauritanie, où des groupes d’adultes sont présents et des pontes et des éclosions en cours, entraînant la formation de groupes et de petites bandes de larves des premiers stades. Des opérations de lutte terrestre sont en cours et près de 6 500 ha ont été traités depuis le début de la campagne.
A few places in Somalia have received rains in the last few weeks. However, the rains have been erratic and short lived.
The three days accumulated rainfall forecast is calling for light rains of up to 20mm in the central parts of Somalia and the Ethiopian highlands. The rest of the country will remain dry during the forecast period.
