Highlights

  • In March, households in Lofa used fewer negative coping strategies than in February. The counties with highest levels of negative coping include Bomi, Grand Cape Mount, Gbarpolu and Lofa.

  • Negative coping strategies are most frequently used by the poorest households, by those living in Ebola-affected rural areas and by households headed by women.

  • Imported and local rice prices remained stable. As the land preparation season advances, wage rates are improving (+3% compared to February).
