86% of the total population in the country is minimally food insecure (IPC Phase 1). The households in this phase have access to a variety of adequate and nutritious food both from household stocks carried forward from first season 2017 and the on-going harvests from the second season, which are good in most areas of the country because of favourable rains received. Food in markets is easily accessed and affordable because prices have declined and the households have adequate purchasing power.

1.1 Background

The IPC is a set of protocols (tools and procedures) to classify the severity of food insecurity and provide actionable knowledge for decision support. The IPC consolidates wide-ranging evidence on food-insecure people to provide core answers to the following questions: How severe is the situation? Where are areas that are food insecure? How many people are food insecure? Who are the food-insecure people in terms of socioeconomic characteristics? Why are the people food insecure?

• 1.2 percent of the population is in phase 3 (crisis) with food consumption gaps, high GAM rates, and are marginally able to meet their minimum food needs through accelerated depletion of assets. These include the poor and destitute households in Karamoja and Acholi regions, those affected and displaced by the flooding in the Elgon and Western Uganda.

Key Outcomes for the Area

Food Consumption: The population in this region is stressed (phase 2). Households are currently rationing food consump-tion due to declining food stocks at household level. 9-15% of the population will suffer deficits for a duration of 1.2 months.

Livelihood Change: The number of livestock seems to have significantly decreased in the agro-pastoral by 21-52% and pastoral zones by 27-58% in 2012, compared with 2008.

REGIONAL SITUATION

• Generally improved regional food security situation due to the recent rains. However, several areas are still in crisis and emergency food security situation (IPC Phase 3 & 4).

• Much as the local populations started recovering from distress, households are presently more vulnerable to new shocks: high malnutrition levels, reduced livestock herd sizes and refugees and IDPs have to adapt to new environments or endure the journey back home.
