Acute food insecurity remains Stressed (IPC Phase 2) in the Eastern Semi-Arid Agro-Pastoral, Eastern Congo Nile Highland Subsistence Farming, and Bugesera Cassava livelihood zones due to increased market dependence during the lean season, above-average food prices, and below-average wages.
Favorable rainfall performance since October has enhanced crop development across the country. Season A harvests are expected to begin normally in December/January and near-average national production is expected.
Increased household access to food and income related to Season A harvests is expected to improve food security outcomes in January. Minimal (IPC Phase 1) acute food insecurity is expected country-wide from January to March 2015.
