Key Messages:

Food assistance is playing an important role in reducing consumption gaps in southern Madagascar. In Androy where the impacts of last season’s drought were most severe, half-ration food assistance will likely prevent worse outcomes but will not fully met household food needs. Consequently, Crisis (IPC 3!) outcomes are projected through the end of the lean season (March). In the districts of Amboasary, Ampanihy, Betioky, Betroka, outcomes will be slightly better, in line with Stressed (IPC Phase 2 or 2!).
