Key Messages
  • In southern and central Afar, the anticipated below normal July to September rains likely to lead to low livestock productivity and higher food prices. The southern and southeastern pastoral areas bordering Kenya and Somalia had well below average March to May Gu rains. These areas will likely move from Stressed (IPC Phase 2) to Stressed (IPC Phase 2!) only with the presence humanitarian assistance between July and September.

  • Due to improved income from different sources, stable food prices, and the start of green maize consumption, food security improved in ginger-growing areas in Southern Nations, Nationalities, and Peoples’ Region (SNNPR). Food security in these areas improved from Crisis (IPC Phase 3) to Stressed (IPC Phase 2) in June and with the anticipated average Belg harvest food security is expected to further improve to Minimal (IPC Phase 1) from July to September.
