Recent harvests improve food availability of all major staples except beans

  • Season B harvests are at near-average levels after a heavy March to May rainy season that enhanced moisture-tolerant crops like maize but reduced the yields of beans and some vegetables. Although improved food availability has largely enabled Minimal (IPC Phase 1) outcomes throughout Rwanda, many displaced households in flood-affected areas are reliant on humanitarian assistance and are likely to remain in Stressed (IPC Phase 2!) through September.

FOOD SECURITY SNAPSHOT

  • Significant production losses for pulse and rice crops in 2018B season due to excess moisture and floods

  • About 50 000 people displaced in April and May due to widespread floods

  • Average 2018A season harvest, with localized production shortfalls in eastern areas due to below-average rainfall

  • Prices of maize declining to low levels in recent months, prices of beans unseasonally increasing in May

Key Messages

  • Heavy rains in March-April, over 191 percent of average, caused bean crop losses, landslides, and flooding, particularly in northern, northwestern, Kigali and southeastern areas. Total Season B production is still likely to be average to below average. Food and income access for most poor households is unlikely to change, and the country is expected to remain in Minimal (IPC Phase 1). Some poor households in areas most affected by the rains are likely to experience Stressed (IPC Phase 2) outcomes.

FOOD SECURITY SNAPSHOT

  • Abundant rains in March offset moisture deficits and lift production prospects of 2018B season crops

  • Average 2018A season harvest, with localized production shortfalls in eastern areas due to below-average rainfall

  • Maize prices stable in recent months around their year-earlier levels

  • Generally good food security situation, with pockets of food insecurity in some eastern districts

Highlights

• WFP continues to support a growing number of Burundian and Congolese refugees hosted in six camps in Rwanda. In addition, WFP is building national capacity to design and manage home grown hunger solutions.

01 Mar 2018 description

Likely average Season A harvests to help maintain favorable food access

KEY MESSAGES

  • Overall, the 2018 Season A harvest is expected to be average, despite some production deficits in the east. With existing income-earning opportunities and a favorable Season B rainfall forecast, Minimal (IPC Phase 1) outcomes are expected to continue countrywide through September 2018. However, some poor households in Kayonza, Kirehe, and Nyagatare districts in Eastern Province may already be in Stressed (IPC Phase 2) due to below-average Season A production.

Ongoing harvests and anticipated crop production likely to maintain Minimal outcomes

KEY MESSAGES

31 Oct 2017 description

Highlights

  • WFP continues to support a growing number of Burundian and Congolese refugees hosted in six camps in Rwanda. Additionally, WFP is building national capacity to design and manage home grown hunger solutions.

  • WFP urgently requires USD10.3 million for the next six months (November 2017 – April 2018) to meet the needs of the refugees.

  • The refugee operation’s resource situation remains critical. WFP has reduced rations by 10 percent in the November general food distributions in order to stretch available resources.

Highlights

  • WFP continues to support a growing number of Burundian and Congolese refugees hosted in six camps in Rwanda.
    Additionally, WFP is building national capacity to design and manage home grown hunger solutions.

  • Despite generous contributions from donors, the refugee operation urgently requires USD 11.4 million to avert possible supply chain breaks expected at the end of November. WFP will most likely implement ration reductions starting November if additional resources are not forthcoming.

27 Sep 2017 description

Highlights

  • WFP’s main priority is to provide food assistance to refugees and vulnerable host communities, and to build national capacity to design and manage homegrown hunger solutions.

  • The refugee operation is currently experiencing significant funding shortfalls which may lead to interruptions in the provision of food assistance.

  • A new phase of the prevention of stunting programme under the Country Programme was not initiated at the beginning of the year because of funding shortfalls.
