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 April to June 2017 Gu season was well below average. This follows large rainfall deficits in 2016 for both April to June Gu and October to December Deyr seasons.

Current Observations

Field estimates indicate very significant crop losses for 2017 Gu agricultural production. The delayed start of season and long dry spells again affected crop growth.

Motif de préoccupation

Following a very severe drought in eastern Ethiopia, more people will need food assistance over the coming year than at any time in the past 10 years.

Current Observations

Seasonal forecasts suggest June to September Kiremt rainfall is likely to be average or above average in most areas. 

Autres zones de préoccupation

Motif de préoccupation

The March to June 2017 Gu season was significantly below average in many areas. This follows below-average 2016 rainfall.

Current Observations

With the delayed start of season and erratic rainfall, the growing period for rainfed crops will be shorter than normal, likely result in substantially reduced yields in many areas.

Motif de préoccupation

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

Current Observations

Spring rainfall in March, April, and May was below average in many rainfed production areas. Although market supply for wheat is stable, households who depend on rainfed production in these areas will be adversely impacted.
