MESSAGES CLÉS

  • En 2017, la production des aliments de base à Madagascar est prévue de rester au-dessous de la moyenne. La récolte principale de riz en cours sera inférieure à 90 pour cent de celle de 2016, car une récente saison de sècheresse inattendue a entrainé un début de saison de plantation tardive. La production de maïs et de manioc va connaitre une modeste reprise mais reste pareillement en dessous de la moyenne (Figure 1). Les importations de riz continuent à jouer un rôle important dans l’approvisionnement en aliment de base pour les mois à venir.
