Key Messages
  • In eastern and central areas of the country, the June to September Kiremt rains started late in some areas and have so far been below average, especially in eastern and central Oromia. The forecast is that cumulative rainfall amount is expected to be below. This will likely lead to a below-average Meher harvest in November/December in these areas.

  • In central Oromia, the Belg harvest was very low due to low amounts of poorly distributed Belg rainfall. Without this harvest and associated labor opportunities, poor households may face food consumption gaps, particularly in September. With less than usual Kiremt rains so far, planting of Meher crops has been delayed. Planted area will be well below average as the planting window for Meher closes at the end of August. This is expected to lead to below average Meher production.
