Key Messages
  • The short rains have been even more below average than previously anticipated, despite some enhanced rainfall from mid-November. As a result, poor crop conditions are imminent in the southeast and coastal marginal agricultural areas due to the delayed onset and poor distribution. Some poor households in these regions are likely to move to Crisis (IPC Phase 3) from January 2017 due to food consumption gaps caused by the loss in their own production and limited income-earning opportunities.

  • FEWS NET expects that food insecurity across most pastoral areas is likely to worsen earlier and be more widespread than previously projected due to substantial drops in livestock productivity and income. Crisis (IPC Phase 3) acute food insecurity outcomes are projected beginning in December 2016 in areas of Garissa, Tana River, Mandera, Samburu, and Marsabit. In the absence of adequate and sustained humanitarian assistance, some poor households in these areas are likely to experience Emergency (IPC Phase 4) between January and April, as they utilize emergency coping to deal with their larger food gaps.  

  • Apart from eastern Kenya, there are growing rainfall deficits even in western parts of the country, which was not initially forecasted, extending atypical dryness across most of the country. Food availability at the national level largely remains stable, due to the continued harvest of the long rains crop in the medium and high-producing zones and imports from Tanzania and Uganda, which is expected to support Minimal (IPC Phase 1) acute food insecurity in these areas.
