Long Rains in the Horn
As forecasted in March by the IGAD Prediction and applications Centre (ICPAC), the heavy rains expected in many parts of the Horn of Africa are ongoing. According to Somalia Water and Land Information Management (SWALIM), the water levels of rivers in Somalia are within the normal range expected at this time of the year. However, fears remain over the possibility of flooding in the Shabelle and Juba riverine areas as a result of increased rainfall in Ethiopian highlands.
Locust situation slowly improving on Red Sea coast
Although Desert Locust infestations are gradually declining along both sides of the Red Sea and in the Horn of Africa, survey and control operations must be maintained in affected countries.
Aerial control operations ended on the Red Sea coast in Eritrea and Sudan as locust infestations have declined and there is a shortage of avgas. A few swarms reached the Tokar Delta and the nearby coast and laid eggs. Consequently, a third generation of hatching is underway and small bands are forming locally.
FEWS NET has developed a global food security outlook process that provides 6 month projections of potential food security conditions in the 25 countries in Africa and Central America as well as in Haiti and Afghanistan. This outlook provides a basis for regional and global resource allocation and contingency planning, as well as in country planning.
