Mensajes clave

  • In West Africa, markets were well supplied with staple foods in November as regional harvests progressed. Staple food prices were stable or declining, except in areas directly and indirectly affected by the conflict in northeastern Nigeria. The Ebola outbreak has led to both official and voluntary restrictions on the movement of goods and people in affected Guinea, Liberia, and Sierra Leone, resulting in atypical market trends in some areas.

  • In East Africa, maize prices continued to decline in Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, and surplus-producing areas of Ethiopia, and South Sudan as harvests and regional trade flows improved market supplies. Staple food prices were high and variable in conflict-affected areas of South Sudan, but declined in northwestern Somalia and Sudan with the progression of local average to above-average harvests. Conflict, insecurity, and seasonal road condition deterioration continued to disrupt markets in parts of South Sudan, Somalia, and the Darfur and South Kordofan States in Sudan.

  • In Southern Africa, regional staple food availability remains higher than previous years. Harvests from the 2013/14 production year were well-above average in the region’s surplus-producing countries. Maize began increasing seasonally in South Africa in November, but prices throughout the region remain below their respective 2013 levels.

  • Market supplies continued increased from recent Primavera harvests in Haiti (June-August) and Postrera harvests in Central America (October-December). Red bean prices reached record-high prices in many areas of Central America in 2014, but declined in many places in November. In Haiti and Guatemala, black bean prices stabilized in November following recent local harvests. Maize prices followed seasonal trends in October, while local and imported rice prices remained stable throughout the region.

  • In Central Asia, wheat availability remained good region-wide in November. Prices were stable, but above average in many places.

  • International rice and wheat prices were stable, while maize and soybean prices increased slightly in November. Global production for most key commodities reached record or near-record levels in 2014, making for very well supplied global markets. Crude oil prices declined sharply again in November, remaining at their lowest levels in four years.

El Observatorio de Precios ofrece un resumen mensual y una perspectiva sobre tendencias globales, regionales y nacionales sobre los precios de productos claves en los países de FEWS NET. El análisis podría centrarse en cuestiones globales tales como precios del combustible o tasa de cambio, si es probable que éstos ejerzan influencia sobre los precios de los alimentos en países de FEWS NET. El Anexo del Observatorio de Precios adjunto detalla las tendencias en precio por país.
