    • Generally above-average harvests across the country are leading to good availability of cereals for households and markets. In addition, average to above-average incomes allow for good household market access. All zones throughout the country will continue to experience Minimal (IPC Phase 1) acute food insecurity between November and March 2015.

    • Poor households in Gao, Bourem and in lake areas of Goundam and Niafunké will exhaust their stocks earlier than normal due to below-average harvests. They will intensify non-agricultural labor and reduce their non-food and food expenses. Beginning in April 2015, these households will experience Stress (IPC Phase 2) acute food insecurity.

    • Following the case in Kayes, more cases of Ebola virus disease (EVD) have been recorded in the capital. However, no significant disruptions have been noted as of yet, and market activities and migration continue despite the rigorous health monitoring measures being taken at the Guinean border.
