Key Messages
  • Because of poor Season B rainfall, production in northeast provinces is estimated to be 40 to 60 percent below average. In areas where rainfall was relatively better, production deficits were between 10 to 30 percent.

  • Food availability from own production is below-average for households in areas where harvests were poor. Price variability in some areas has caused poor households to reduce non-food expenditures in order to cover food requirements through market purchase. Areas most affected by crop losses are provinces in the Northeast.

  • Poor households in northeastern livelihood zones are expected to face Stressed (IPC Phase 2) acute food insecurity from July to November. Food security conditions are expected to improve with the availability of Season A green harvests in December.
