Key Messages

  • La production céréalière prévisionnelle en Afrique de l’ouest estimée en novembre 2013 est en hausse de 16 pour cent par rapport à la moyenne avec toutefois un niveau de production moyen au Sahel du fait des retards de semis et de l’arrêt précoce des pluies.

  • L’approvisionnement des marchés demeure globalement satisfaisant dans la région en raison des récoltes des différentes cultures en cours. Ceci contribue à la baisse saisonnière des prix pouvant améliorer les disponibilités alimentaires auprès des ménages qui dépendent des marchés.

  • La situation nutritionnelle évaluée en juin-août 2013 demeure préoccupante chez les enfants de 0 à 5 ans de la région.

  • Selon les résultats de l’analyse de la vulnérabilité avec le Cadre Harmonisé dans la région, 1 671 000 personnes ont besoin d’une assistance humanitaire immédiate.
