AFGHANISTAN: Severe drought, high food prices, and ongoing conflict have led to widespread food insecurity. Ongoing wheat imports and increased humanitarian aid are expected to ensure sufficient food availability until early 2009. However, another emergency appeal will likely be required by February/March 2009 due to poor response to the current appeal and expected price increases during the February- April hunger season.
High international food and fuel prices represent a relatively new global food security threat, especially for poor urban households.
FEWS NET alert overviews
AFGHANISTAN: Below–average precipitation and early snowmelt during the 2007/08 winter season have led to below–average wheat production and pasture conditions. Labor migration, not typical for this time of year, is widespread, and access to drinking water is deteriorating.
