In eastern DRC, where conflict continues to disrupt households' access to food and income, Crisis (IPC Phase 3) is also expected. The rest of the region is likely to maintain Minimal (IPC Phase 1) or Stressed (IPC Phase 2) throughout the projection period.

Highlights

Across the southern African region, maize supplies have improved seasonally with the ongoing harvest, and prices have generally been on a downward trend since March. In most countries, staple food prices are below their 5 year average (5YA) levels.

Yet, in pockets of areas reporting poor harvest, households are expected to deplete their stocks earlier than usual this year and turn to markets for their supply; prices in areas such as southern Malawi, southern Mozambique, and central and southern Zambia could tick upwards sooner than usual.

Introduction

Following the outbreak of violence in Juba in July 2016, the conflict in South Sudan expanded to previously peaceful areas, including the Greater Equatoria region (Central, Eastern, and Western Equatoria states). Many areas in the Greater Equatoria region are largely inaccessible to humanitarian actors due to insecurity. As a result, only limited information is available on the humanitarian situation outside of a few large towns and displacement sites.
