La Niña Outlook

The impact of the prevailing La Niña condition continues to affect the southern and south-eastern pastoralist areas of the country and is expanding to Afar region. According to WFP's latest report, parts of Afar, Somali, the eastern and southeastern pastoralist and agro-pastoralist parts of Oromia and the southern lowlands of SNNPR dependent on the gu/genna/sugum (March to May) rains have received very little or no rain to date. Meanwhile, major belg-producing parts of Tigray, Amhara, Oromia and SNNPR are experiencing poor rains, as earlier predicted by weather forecasts. For more information, contact wfp.addisababa@wfp.org
