Key Messages
  • In the north, where acute food insecurity conditions are Stressed (IPC Phase 2), the food security situation remains more difficult than usual for poor agropastoral households in the midst of the lean season. In addition, in light of low incomes and staple food prices above the five-year average, households have limited food access and are unable to meet their livelihood protection needs.

  • However, in this part of the country, problems of getting animals to water experienced in previous months are beginning to improve with the early onset of rains, which has also led to the gradual regrowth of pasture and improved grazing and watering conditions for livestock.

  • In the rest of the country, household food access is marked by staple food prices that are near or below the five-year average and by the availability of bush products and wild foods, allowing households to experience a relatively normal lean season.
