POST HARVEST IMPROVEMENT IN HOUSEHOLD FOOD SECURITY HALTS

Key messages

  • In February, nearly one third of the interviewed households was found to be severely food insecure.

  • The food security situation has worsened compared to January, when the positive effects of the harvest — increased labor opportunities and reduced food prices - were reflected on households’ food consumption and use of negative coping strategies.
