  • La régularité des pluies depuis le mois de juillet dans la majeure partie de la région a permis un développement satisfaisant des cultures qui sont au stade de reproduction-maturation. Aux nouvelles récoltes de maïs, arachide et d’igname provenant des pays côtiers s’ajoutent les récoltes en vert dans les pays sahéliens. En dépit des dégâts de déprédateurs dont la chenille légionnaire, la réunion du PREGEC de septembre 2018 tenue à Lomé évalue les perspectives de récoltes 2018/19 de moyennes à bonnes.

PROJECTED FOOD ASSISTANCE NEEDS FOR MARCH 2019

12 Sep 2018 description

Introduction.

More than four years after the crisis broke out in December 2013, the situation in the Central African Republic (CAR) remains extremely worrying. Since May 2017, new violence between armed groups has forced thousands of people to flee, resulting in a quarter of the population either being internally displaced or living as a refugee in neighbouring countries. The European Union supports those most affected by providing basic items and services such as food, healthcare, emergency shelter, water and sanitation, and protection of civilians.

  2. Torrential rain has increased the level of the Atbara and Dindir Rivers. Additional rainfall over the region is likely to further raise water levels, including the Nile River and its tributaries.
