Áreas de maior preocupação

Motivo de preocupação

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

Current Observations

Significant rainfall deficits persist in large parts of Eastern Equatoria and southern Jonglei, resulting in poor pasture and water conditions for livestock. 

Motivo de preocupação

Boko Haram attacks continue in the northeast, and the ongoing conflict will likely severely limit area cultivated during the 2018 main season. Nearly 1.9 million people are currently displaced.

Current Observations

According to IOM’s most recent Displacement Tracking Matrix, there are nearly 3.5 million IDPs, refugees, and returnees in the northeast.

Motivo de preocupação

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

Current Observations

Humanitarian operations continue to be impeded in Al Hudaydah governorate following the mid-June military offensive.

Motivo de preocupação

Severe drought over the past year has resulted in very large livestock losses in Ethiopia’s Somali Region, which has sharply reduced household food and income access.

Current Observations

In Afar Region, below-average vegetation conditions persist, particularly after a delayed start of the Karan/Karma (July to September) rains.

Outras áreas de preocupação

Motivo de preocupação

Although the April to June 2018 Gu rainy season has led to improvements, most regions are still recovering from prolonged drought and the associated impact of large-scale livestock losses and poor production.

Current Observations

According to UNHCR, the total number of IDPs increased 24 percent to 2.6 million people between April and June 2018, due to recurrent conflict and seasonal flooding.

Motivo de preocupação

Ongoing conflicts in the Kasai region, North Kivu, South Kivu, Ituri, and Tanganyika Provinces have caused ongoing displacement and affected households’ abilities to access their livelihoods.

Current Observations

Concerns increase for an uptick in violence as the final date for candidate registration for the December 2018 presidential election grows nearer.

Motivo de preocupação

Conflict has expanded in recent years, with more than 1.1 million people displaced since the beginning of 2016. Drought in the north and northwest will reduce yields for 2018 main season wheat and other crops. Rangeland conditions are also very poor in some of these areas.

Current Observations

Fighting in Ghazni City displaced over 7,500 people from Aug 13 to Aug 17. As fighting decreases and becomes sporadic, humanitarian assistance has started to reach the city.

Motivo de preocupação

Poorly distributed rains and drought conditions will lead to production losses during the main harvest for smallholders in parts of Malawi, Mozambique, Madagascar and Zimbabwe.

Current Observations

There is increasing concern for Cabo Delgado Province of Mozambique where ongoing insecurity and sporadic conflict is disrupting livelihoods.
