• 2.6 million people were food insecure in January 2011 according to the results of the joint national survey of early warning system (EWS) and partners on vulnerability to food insecurity.

• Successive waves of arrivals of migrants forced to leave Libya, increase household food insecurity among those dependent on remittances.

• The unexpected trends in the prevalence of acute malnutrition in the region of Tillaberi in October / November 2011 were likely due to a gap between the cessation of assistance in September/October and the delayed start of harvest from October to December.
