    • Current food security conditions and expected outcomes during the Outlook period (through March 2012)* are mixed across the East Africa region, with the areas of greatest concern in southern Somalia, Sudan, and South Sudan. Given the prevalence of Crisis and Emergency levels of food insecurity in different parts of the region and the possibility of below-average March to May 2012 rainfall in northern Kenya, southern Ethiopia, and most of Somalia, contingency plans are needed to enable timely response before further deterioration of food insecurity. 

    • Parts of Nile Sobat zone and the Eastern and Western Flood Plain zone, particularly Jonglei State, also face Crisis levels of food insecurity due to conflict among local clans and violent cattle raiding that have caused significant population displacement and affected crop production. Deterioration of food security is expected in these areas as stocks from the main season harvest are depleted.

    Occasionally, FEWS NET will publish a Special Report that serves to provide an in-depth analysis of food security issues of particular concern that are not covered in FEWS NET’s regular monthly reporting. These reports may focus on a specific factor driving food security outcomes anywhere in the world during a specified period of time. For example, in 2019, FEWS NET produced a Special Report on widespread flooding in East Africa and its associated impacts on regional food security.
