Overview

The Early Warning Early Action initiative has been developed with the understanding that disaster losses and emergency response costs can be drastically reduced by using early warning analysis to act before a crisis escalates into an emergency.
Early actions strengthen the resilience of at-risk populations, mitigate the impact of disasters and help communities, governments and national and international humanitarian agencies to respond more effectively and efficiently.

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

A few months ago, it would have been impossible to imagine a woman from the Twa community visiting predominantly Bantu villages to talk about peace. According to a long-held belief in the eastern part of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Twa women were not allowed to engage in public speaking. But in Monde village, in Kabalo territory, some women have proved that they could actively participate in strengthening social cohesion within their villages.

FOOD SECURITY SNAPSHOT

  • Average 2018B crop production despite significant pulse losses due to excess moisture

  • Widespread floods in April resulting in displacement of about 9 600 individuals

  • Above-average 2018A season output due to favourable weather conditions

  • Prices of maize declining in recent months to low levels, prices of beans on increase

Pasture woes and conflict’s damage to livestock trade pushes up hunger among West Africa’s pastoralists

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.

Key Points
- Renewed conflict and the expansion of violence in 2017 has forced 3 in 5 people from their homes (January‒June 2017) bringing the current caseload to 4.1 million IDPs in the Democratic Republic of the Congo ‒ one of the world’s largest humanitarian crises.
- Food insecurity levels continue to worsen and major increases in malnutrition rates were recorded, with about 4.6 million children acutely malnourished.

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.
