Season A harvests are currently underway increasing food availability and access for poor households country-wide. Poor households will face Minimal (IPC Phase 1) acute food insecurity from January to March.
Staple food prices have stabilized due to increased supply to markets during harvests. However, food prices remain above-average in many areas. As households exhaust food stocks and become more market reliant during the February to May lean season, acute food security is expected to deteriorate to Stressed (IPC Phase 2) in the second quarter.
