Key Messages
  • Season A 2015 planting is almost complete across the country.  Average to above-average rainfall is expected from October to December and Season A harvest prospects are favorable. Average production is expected. 

  • 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. From December through March, most poor households will face Minimal (IPC Phase 1) acute food insecurity.
