PROJECTED FOOD ASSISTANCE NEEDS FOR DECEMBER 2018

02 Jun 2018 description

Key Messages

Staple foods, including maize, peanuts and pulses, from agricultural season B in the northeast and center-east of DRC are ready to harvest. Above-average rainfall in the east of the country (Tanganyika, South Kivu and North Kivu) has caused flooding and landslides that in some areas blocked roads and disrupted agriculture. As a result, it is expected that agricultural production may be below normal in these affected areas.

Maize is the single most important cereal crop in Southern Africa, accounting for almost 70% of total cereal production in the region. Most households in Southern Africa depend on maize (grain and meal/flour) for their main source of food and energy, with tubers (cassava), rice, wheat, sorghum, and millet serving as the main substitutes. Madagascar is the exception, where rice (imported and local) is the main staple food consumed across the country, with cassava and maize serving as key substitutes.

Maize and cassava are the main staple foods consumed by households in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), and is usually prepared in a dough-like consistency called fufu.
The country is heavily dependent on imported maize, as local production of both maize and cassava is typically unable to cover local demand. Rice is the third most important staple food and is mainly consumed in larger urban areas, while beans is used in both urban and rural areas as an accompaniment to cereal-based dishes.

Early green harvest consumption supports Minimal (IPC Phase 1) outcomes in bimodal areas

Key Messages

01 Jun 2018 description

Messages clés

  • La saison agricole B dans les parties Nord-est et Centre-est de la RDC se prête à la récolte des principaux vivriers notamment le maïs, l’arachide et le haricot. Les prédictions sur les anomalies cumulées des précipitations se sont bien manifestées dans les provinces de l’Est du pays (Tanganyika, Sud-Kivu et Nord Kivu) à travers les inondations, les éboulements et la destruction des infrastructures routières par endroits. On pourrait s’attendre à une production agricole en dessous de la normale dans ces zones affectées.

Le Réseau de systèmes d’alerte précoce contre la famine (FEWS NET) surveille les tendances des prix des aliments de base dans les pays vulnérables à l'insécurité alimentaire. Pour chaque pays et chaque région couvert par FEWS NET, le Bulletin des prix fournit un ensemble de graphiques indiquant les prix mensuels de l’année commerciale en cours pour certains centres urbains, et permettant à l’utilisateur de comparer les tendances actuelles à la fois aux moyennes quinquennales, qui indiquent les tendances saisonnières, et aux prix de l'année précédente.

PROJECTED FOOD ASSISTANCE NEEDS FOR NOVEMBER 2018

07 May 2018 description

Key Messages

  • Cereal production during the upcoming harvest season in Southern Africa is expected to be below average, despite the heavy late rains, which benefitted the late planted crops. This is due to a late start of the rainy season, minimal to no rains during the critical planting season (December -January), high temperatures and the prevalence of Fall Armyworm (FAW).

Summary Points

  • In Eastern Africa, staple commodity prices generally followed seasonal trends in Uganda, Kenya, and Somalia, but atypical price trends were observed in Sudan, South Sudan, Ethiopia, and Tanzania (FEWS NET Price Watch, March 2018). Prices are expected to follow seasonal trends through June 2018, remaining below last year and five year USD prices due to a combination of currency depreciation, better production than 2017, and regional imports.

Above-average rainfall across Uganda expected to support favorable first season harvests

Key Messages

  • Rainfall has been above average throughout Uganda. Although incidences of flooding and water logging have been reported, so far these events are isolated and have not had widespread negative impacts. Harvests are expected to be average and most areas of the country will maintain Minimal (IPC Phase 1).

01 May 2018 description

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.
