    • Crop planting continues, and the agricultural season is progressing normally, thanks to average to above average rainfall recorded across the country. According to the National Directorate of Agriculture, cereal production is forecast to be 18.5 percent higher than the five-year average, thanks to agricultural input support from the Government and partners and favorable rainfall.

    • The regeneration of pastures and water points thanks to the onset of rains is marking the end of the pastoral lean season across the country and revived the transhumance of livestock. However, this has been disrupted in some places by insecurity. The recovery of livestock production will improve the food supply and income of pastoral households. The epizootic situation is calm, and the vaccination campaign continues with partners such as the ICRC and FAO.

    • Cereal market supplies remain average across the country, although there have been disruptions in some markets in insecure areas of the center and north. Cereal prices, broadly similar to or higher than the five-year average, limit access to food for poor households in insecure areas and urban centers, where incomes are declining.

    • The ongoing Crisis (IPC Phase 3) food insecurity will continue until September for poor households in Liptako Gourma. The same applies to displaced households due to their inability to meet their food needs without resorting to negative coping strategies. The government and partners' ongoing humanitarian food and non-food assistance will limit negative coping strategies in beneficiary areas.
