Crisis (IPC Phase 3) food insecurity continues in the northeast due to conflict

KEY MESSAGES

 Boko Haram-related conflict is continuing in the northeast, causing population displacements within the region. However, food assistance to these displaced households has been limited by security concerns. Due to above-average food prices and a reduced capacity to cope, poor households in the northeast will face Crisis (IPC Phase 3) food insecurity through September.

 Poor households who suffered losses to their productive assets and/or crops during the 2012 floods are also having difficulties accessing food due to atypically high prices, an early depletion of food stocks, and below-average cropping incomes earlier in the year. Until the start of the main harvest in September/October, households in flood-affected areas will be Stressed (IPC Phase 2).

 Due to below-average rainfall, the main 2013 harvest (September to November) is expected to be average to belowaverage. However even in areas with below-average harvests, most households will be able to meet their food needs through their own crop production and will face Minimal (IPC Phase 1) food insecurity between October and December.
