FOOD SECURITY SNAPSHOT

  • Uncertain prospects for 2014/15 cropping season mainly due to conflict in parts, including major producing areas
  • Ninevah and Salah-Aldeen governorates, at the centre of the current conflict, together produce nearly one-third and about 38 percent of total annual national wheat and barley production, respectively.
  • Loss of assets and income opportunities from farming together with disruptions in marketing activities and related logistics, have exposed large number of people to severe food insecurity; increasing number of IDPs is also putting huge pressure on host communities
