Key Messages
  • Early seasonal rainfall enabled land preparation and planting for Season A in August and September. Average to above-average rainfall is expected from October to December and Season A harvest prospects are favorable. 

  • Staple food prices stabilized from July to August but remain above the five-year average in many markets across the country. Above-average 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.
