    • The supply of essential food commodities has remained stable in most areas. However, conflicts in Al Bayda, Sa’ada, Hajjah, and Al Hudaydah Governorates have caused localized market disruptions. 

    • Second season harvests of sorghum and wheat in the Central Highlands were average to above-average due to the favorable rains. Estimated average national cereal production in 2014 has supported typical agricultural labor opportunities. 

    • Wholesale prices of wheat grain and wheat flour declined by 4 and 6 percent respectively during November 2014 as compared to the previous month, due to reduced international prices, local production and stabilized fuel prices. Average October wheat grain prices in Sana’a were five percent below the five-year average.

    • Crisis (IPC Phase 3) acute food insecurity is expected to continue in many areas of the country through at least March 2015.
