Key Points

- Food insecurity levels continue to worsen and major increases in malnutrition rates were recorded, with about 4.6 million children acutely malnourished.

01 Apr 2018 description

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

24 Mar 2018 description

Summary Points
- White maize grain was as usual, the most regionally traded commodity between October and December 2017 because of increasing supply from the previous June-to-July, and ongoing November-to-January harvests (see Figure 1). Recurrent conflict-related trade disruptions from southern to northern markets in South Sudan encouraged alternative imports from Sudan in the north.

High levels of food insecurity persist in the world, due largely to conflicts and to adverse climatic shocks that are taking a toll, particularly in East African and Near East countries, where large numbers of people continue to be in need of humanitarian assistance, a new FAO report notes. Some 37 countries are in need of external assistance for food, unchanged from three months ago, according to the Crop Prospects and Food Situation report issued today.
