Households from Lake Faguibine and Gourma resort to atypical coping strategies
Poor households from Lake Faguibine and Gourma in Timbuktu and Gao have had difficulty accessing markets and have resorted to atypical coping strategies including borrowing and changing eating habits.This is due to below-average cereal production and livestock incomes in 2015 when there were weak floods and high cattle mortality. These households are consequently in Stressed (IPC Phase 2) acute food insecurity.
FOOD SECURITY SNAPSHOT
Adequate rains so far have facilitated crop development in most regions
Coarse grain prices increased seasonably in June but remain lower than their year-earlier levels
Humanitarian assistance still needed despite improved civil security situation
Early prospects favourable for 2016 cropping season
En 2014, plus de 527 400 personnes ont pu être aidées dans nos 14 programmes de développement.
Autant de vies changées, comme celle d’Aye qui a pu retrouver le chemin de l’école au Myanmar. Elle bénéficie des cours du soir mis en place par Vision du Monde, pour les enfants qui travaillent la journée afin d’aider leurs parents. Ce programme est une véritable opportunité pour Aye. Elle apprend à écrire, lire, compter, et peut maintenant espérer un avenir meilleur.
WFP assisted 205,000 food insecure people with food, cash and vouchers to respond to the food insecurities brought by the lean season (June-September).
The end of the 2015-2016 academic school year in Mali was marked by WFP providing school meals to 182,000 children throughout the country, including Kidal. However, urgent funding is needed to continue the school meals programme into the upcoming academic year.
WFP introduced a cash component, representing 30 percent of the entitlement distributed to refugees in the Mberra camp.
WFP, in coordination with the Government of Mauritania, presented the preliminary results of the Cost of Hunger in Africa, and technically validated the new national policy on school feeding.
Without additional funding, WFP will not be able to assist 415,000 people it planned during the lean season.

Feeding a family: The daily challenges of a woman caring for her household
Humanitarian needs in Niger continue to be immense as a result of lasting food insecurity, high global malnutrition of children under age five and the displacement of people fleeing the conflicts in neighbouring Mali* and Nigeria*. Successive food crises, extreme poverty, displacement and rapid population growth continue to erode people’s resilience. Even in good agricultural years, between 4 and 5 million Nigeriens experience food shortages.
The European Union is one of the largest contributors of humanitarian aid to the Sahel. As such, its assistance to this region has been reaffirmed and has reached over EUR 203 million so far in 2016. The funding will support the 1.2 million Sahelian people affected by food insecurity as well as the treatment of 550 000 children affected by severe acute malnutrition. This represents a quarter of all food security needs and 43% of child malnutrition care needs in the Sahel.
PROJECTED FOOD ASSISTANCE NEEDS FOR JANUARY 2017

Background and aims
In 2015, the Global Cluster for Early Recovery (GCER) sought to measure how well early recovery was integrated into each cluster, and in parallel, to advance understanding of the relative importance of early recovery principles and practices in humanitarian crises overall. In designing a methodology to undertake this analysis, two assumptions were made.
