Zones les plus préoccupantes

Motif de préoccupation

Conflict has severely disrupted trade, humanitarian access, and livelihoods. Very poor macroeconomic conditions constrain household market access.

Current Observations

Further deterioration in food security is likely during an extended lean season (February-July), as widespread insecurity continues to limit livelihoods, disrupt trade, and block humanitarian access.

Motif de préoccupation

Boko Haram conflict continues to contribute to large-scale population displacement, limit market activity, and restrict normal livelihoods.

Current Observations

Despite improved humanitarian access in some areas, large parts of the northeast that remain inaccessible to humanitarian actors continue to face an elevated risk of Famine (IPC Phase 5).

Motif de préoccupation

The extensive conflict has reduced incomes, and food prices remain elevated. Food access is inadequate for many poor households.

Current Observations

In addition to the impact of conflict on household livelihoods, markets, and humanitarian access, the deteriorating macroeconomic situation is affecting the private sector’s ability to import food.

Motif de préoccupation

The October to December Deyr season failed. This follows below-average April to June Gu rainfall. A below-average 2017 Gu is forecast.

Current Observations

The scarcity of safe drinking water has led to an outbreak of AWD/cholera. According to WHO, there have been 10,571 cases reported and 269 deaths since January 2017. Nearly half of all cases were reported in Bay.

Autres zones de préoccupation

Motif de préoccupation

Due to the 2015/16 El Niño-induced drought across much of the region, the regional maize deficit is estimated to be just over 5 million MT.

Heavy rainfall since late December has resulted in localized floods in several areas. Risk remains high for additional floods in central and eastern sectors.

Motif de préoccupation

Hurricane Matthew directly struck southwestern Haiti in early October, significantly damaging crops and infrastructure while disrupting livelihood activities.

Current Observations

Food assistance needs remain particularly high in Grand’Anse and Sud departments. Agricultural assistance needed to ensure success of the main Printemps 2017 agricultural season.

Motif de préoccupation

Conflict and weak non-agricultural labor markets are inhibiting normal livelihoods and market access for many.

Current Observations

Although most basins have above-average snow accumulation as of mid-March, precipitation was below-average during the beginning of the rainfed planting season.

Motif de préoccupation

2015/16 crop production in southern Madagascar was well below-average or failed, depending on the area, due to the effects of a severe El Niño-related drought.

Current Observations

Due to losses of subsistence crops and household food supplies from cyclone-related flooding, food prices in local markets are increasing. Food availability will continue to be difficult in some remote areas cut off by damaged roads.
