But most pernicious of all is the salinization of soil across large tracts of coastal and riverine farmland.

Cette modicité est plus accentuée dans les marchés ruraux de collecte, du fait de l’épuisement des réserves paysannes. Toutefois, les stocks des céréales importées (riz, sorgho, maïs) sont satisfaisants.

A. Situation Analysis

Description of the disaster

Senegal is prone to food crisis since is one of the world’s least developed countries while the economy relies heavily on cash crops and fishing, both of which are vulnerable to climate change. Harvest deficits in 2014 and 2015, triggered by recurring droughts and floods, resulted in the early onset of the lean season leading to the food scarcity. Severely weakening food security in northern and central Senegal.

By Moustapha Diallo, IFRC

In Lambago, like in most of villages in Diery, Matam, in north-eastern Senegal, the soils are dry and without vegetation. Mile upon mile, there is no water to be found. Only thorns on parched grass; mainly acacia and jujube trees. Here, crops depend on rainfall and the irregularity of the latter remains a major handicap.

“The plants did not reach maturity due an early end of the rains last year. Most of us almost harvested nothing,” said Aissatou Gueda Guissé, a resident of Dendoudi, a few kilometres away from Lambago.
