However, in December 2013, war broke out again in South Sudan.

Headlines

• The upwards trend in cereal prices across North Darfur continued during this quarter, fuelled by inflation, the announcement of the removal of the fuel subsidy and seasonality of supply.

• There has been some improvement in food security indicators in Malha, reflected in improved terms of trade between goats and cereals. This is partially attributable to the distribution of food aid by WFP and distribution of the strategic grain reserve stock by government.

• The price of livestock has continued on an upwards trend in most markets in North Darfur.

Headlines

• Although cereal prices have generally increased during the quarter, they fell in some markets between April and May 2012, which may be a consequence of the trade embargo between Sudan and South Sudan halting the cereal trade from Darfur to South Sudan.

• Cereal prices in West Darfur are generally lower than in North Darfur reflecting greater availability and there appears to be stronger market integration than in North Darfur.
