Failure of the Heys/Dadaa rains

KEY MESSAGES

  • Most households in areas especially hard hit by the failure of the Heys/Dadaa rains are experiencing Crisis acute food insecurity (IPC Phase 3). There is mounting strain on their livelihoods and normal sources of food and income will continue to fail to meet household food consumption requirements.

  • High staple food prices are beyond the purchasing power of poor households. Market prices in non-coastal areas hinge on the availability of food assistance.
