Key points:

Food prices in Mosul are significantly higher than in the rest of Ninewa governorate, especially in Mosul’s unliberated areas.

Food shortages are widely reported in western Mosul — in particular, vegetables, pulses, meat and milk.

Households’ access to food is constrained, as there is not enough food on the local market to meet the demand.
The scarcity of available food has led to high prices of food commodities making them unaffordable for most households, who do not have access to income sources.
