Executive Summary

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.
