FEWS NET overviews
EAST AFRICA: In Kenya, the 2009 national long rains assessment has found that food security among pastoralists has declined in Marsabit, Isiolo, Samburu, Tana River and marginal agricultural producers in Mwingi and Kitui due to the combined effects of drought, high food prices, livestock disease, and conflict. As a result, 3.8 million rural Kenyans are currently highly to extremely food insecure.
AFRICA: In eastern Africa, despite improved outlook for current season crops in several countries, more than 18 million people are in need of food assistance. In western Africa, notwithstanding improved harvest prospects generally in the Sahel, the food security situation is still of concern notably in Niger, Mali and Burkina Faso. In Southern Africa, food insecurity is worsening for an estimated 12 million people due to reduced harvests in 2005, escalating food prices and rising energy costs.
