Honduras Remote Monitoring Update, March 2013


Minimal acute food insecurity through the end of the consumption year


  • The acute food insecurity is likely to remain Minimal (Phase 1, IPC 2.0), even with the seasonal onset of the lean season in April, as poor households are meeting their food and nonfood needs from current average to good income and accessible consumer food prices.

  • The Primera planting season will begin in May/June. Average amounts of rainfall and planted area are anticipated, followed by average harvests in August/September.

  • The coffee rust outbreak will not significantly affect current yields or labor demand, yet will affect the 2013/14 harvest season.
