Liberia Remote Monitoring Update, March 2013


Minimal food insecurity will likely continue through next June


• Last season's good harvests, coupled with normal livelihood strategies, are enabling households to meet essential food and non-food needs. Households are expected to be food secure (IPC Phase 1) through at least June 2013.

• Despite low levels of voluntary repatriation, the majority of Ivorian refugees living within Liberia will likely stay through the next agricultural season due to uncertainties about their security and access to food, housing and income in their home country. These refugees will continue to improve their living conditions in Liberia by engaging in income generating activities and crop production. Those living within refugee camps will also partially rely on food assistance.
