Abundant rains during the Karan/Karma season foreshadow improved food security for rural areas

KEY MESSAGES

  • The performance of the Karan/Karma season (July to September) has greatly improved the food security situation in terms of diversified sources of income, implying improved access to foods. Most rural households will be in Stressed food insecurity (IPC Phase 2) during the scenario period.

  • With September’s seasonal resumption of activities, urban households will continue to be in Stressed acute food insecurity until December. The food voucher program for vulnerable households, which continued through the summer, allowed populations to preserve their income by limiting food expenses.
