Overview of Food Security Assistance

Emergency food assistance, like that being provided this year in Ethiopia and Eritrea, is necessary to save lives. The U.S. believes that without this assistance, the development track that these countries are on will be further eroded, leaving populations at greater risk when the next food crisis occurs.

The U.S. recognizes that food assistance alone cannot break the cycle of famine. The U.S. is assisting leaders of famine prone countries in growing their economies and addressing the underlying causes of repeated food crises.

Update of El Niño/SOUTHERN OSCILLATION (ENSO)

Sea surface temperatures remained warmer than average in the central and western equatorial Pacific and near average in the eastern equatorial Pacific during January. Equatorial ocean surface temperatures greater than +0.5oC (~1oF) above average were found between Indonesia and 165oW, and departures greater than +1oC were found between 160oE and 175oW. Since early December 2003, SST anomalies have decreased in all of the Niño regions (Fig. 2).

EL NIÑO/SOUTHERN OSCILLATION (ENSO) DIAGNOSTIC DISCUSSION

31 Aug 2003 description


The major annual harvests are now nearing completion across the Greater Horn of Africa. The crop has already been harvested in the south of the region, harvesting is ongoing in the equatorial regions and is approaching maturity in the northern areas. Immediate humanitarian efforts now concentrate on meeting the peak relief needs in the preharvest period in the northern areas. Simultaneously attention is turning to assessing emergency needs in the coming year. Areas of current priority concern are shown in Figure 1 below.

Severe food security crises continue in eastern Ethiopia and Eritrea

07 May 2003 description

The extent of flooding in Kenya and Somalia has increased over the last few days. Thousands of people are reportedly displaced in Busia, Kisumu and Baringo districts in Kenya, and roads rendered impassable in parts of both these districts. Over 30 people are feared dead in Kenya. Nairobi is currently experiencing severe water shortages following bursting of the Sasumua water reservoir occasioned by current heavy rains. The 3-day weather forecast indicates that heavy rains are expected to continue over the western sector of Kenya, which is likely to result in continued flooding.

Recent heavy rains have led to flooding in several river basins in the Greater Horn of Africa (GHA).

Summary
Pledges to the food aid appeal of the governments of Eritrea and Ethiopia for 2003 have reached over 897,000 MT or 47 percent of the total appeal of 1.92 million MT from the two countries. However, the amount is still insufficient to meet the emergency requirements for 2003.

Summary
Major food security concerns persist in the north of the GHA region. Prolonged drought, in conjunction with chronic poverty and economic shocks, has left massive numbers of Ethiopians, Eritreans and Sudanese in need of relief interventions at the start of 2003. With the level of pledges still falling well below assessed needs, fears continue that the current food security crisis could deteriorate further into famine.
