Key Messages
  • Above-average rainfall performance has enabled Season A crop development. Harvest prospects are favorable due to expected above-average rainfall forecasted for the remainder of the season. January 2015 Season A production is expected to be near normal. 

  • Staple food prices remain above the five-year average in many markets across the country. High prices are due to Season B production deficits, particularly in Northeastern livelihood zones. 

  • Stressed (IPC Phase 2) acute food insecurity is expected to persist among poor households in the Northeast until December when food availability and access will improve with Season A harvests. Food security is likely to improve country-wide to Minimal (IPC Phase 1) from January to March.
