Minimal acute food insecurity is expected to continue through September

Key Messages

Household rice stocks are average despite a decrease in national rice production of about 7 percent compared to the five-year average, except in southeastern counties where some decreases in production were concentrated. Although the lean season has started normally in April in the southeast, poor households throughout the country are still able to meet essential food and non-food needs through normal livelihood strategies.

Due to normal levels and sources of food and income, in addition to stable imported rice prices on most markets, Minimal acute food insecurity (IPC Phase 1) is likely to be maintained through at least September 2014.
