Key Messages
  • An early end of Belg rains in May and below-normal cumulative June to September Kiremt rains mean that many long-cycle crops wilted or are growing more slowly along the Rift Valley in central Oromia and Southern Nations, Nationalities, and Peoples’ Region (SNNPR). Slower growth and wilting are also observed in eastern Oromia, Waghimra Zone in Amhara, and Raya Azebo Woreda in Tigray. With a likely much below-average Meher harvest in these areas, households will more quickly deplete their food stocks, likely becoming more food insecure as these deplete after December.

  • Despite the Karma/Karan rains, pasture has not fully recovered in most northern pastoral areas. Not yet having any increased livestock productivity, poor households will continue to rely on humanitarian assistance through December and beyond.
