August 2015
Key Messages
  • Despite improved rains since the beginning of August, cumulative seasonal rainfall remains 25 to 80 percent below average in much of the country. Ongoing rainfall deficits have delayed planting and vegetation conditions remain well below average. Below-average area planted and a shorter-than-normal growing season will likely lead to below-average 2015/16 national production. 

  • An estimated 52,000 people in the southeastern Nuba Mountains of South Kordofan State  and in the Yabus area of Blue Nile State face food consumption gaps due to insecurity, disruption of market supplies, and poor rainfall performance over the course of June and July.
