Lesotho: Lesotho Remote Monitoring Update November 2013

Stable incomes and humanitarian support ensure sufficient access to food


• Stable income opportunities associated with agriculture activities, ongoing poverty reduction and humanitarian programs, and the start of the green harvest are all expected to contribute to continued sufficient food access, resulting in Minimal (IPC Phase 1) acute food insecurity outcomes from November-March.

• Expected seasonal food price increases between December and February will increase food insecurity for the estimated poorest households with reduced purchasing power.

• Seasonal rains have been slow to start in the central and western part of the country and this could potentially delay the start of planting, which may impact yields for the Southern lowlands, and parts of the Foothills and Senqu River Valley livelihood zones.
