Messages clés

Les conditions de sécurité se dégradent avec la poursuite des affrontements entre groupes armés et des attaques contre des civils et des acteurs humanitaires. Les déplacements de population perturbent l’accès des ménages à leurs moyens d’existence habituels. Selon les estimations d’OCHA du 31 juillet le nombre de déplacés internes a atteint 600 000 personnes, soit une augmentation de plus 100 000 personnes par rapport à 2016 à la même période.

Messages clés

La satisfaction des besoins en eaux des cultures augure des perspectives de production agricole moyennes ou supérieures à la moyenne. Les récoltes de mil et de niébé observées dans la majorité des zones agricoles renforcent les disponibilités des produits et les opportunités d’emplois agricoles pour les ménages pauvres. Cela contribue au maintien d’une insécurité alimentaire aiguë Minimale (Phase 1 de l’IPC) jusqu’au moins janvier 2018.
