Áreas de maior preocupação

Motivo de preocupação

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).

Motivo de preocupação

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.

Motivo de preocupação

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.

Motivo de preocupação

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

Food security is expected to further deteriorate over the coming months, and improvements in early summer 2017 depend highly on the 2017 Gu.

Motivo de preocupação

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.

Current Observations

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

Motivo de preocupação

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.

Motivo de preocupação

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

Current Observations

Heavy snowfall in February alleviated concerns of availability of snowmelt for 2017 irrigated crops, but also led to road blockages and an unknown number of deaths.

Motivo de preocupação

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

Assistance in the south is playing an important role in mitigating food consumption gaps. Current rainfall deficits in eastern Madagascar are expected to impact rice production.
