    High food prices persist, but decline was observed in August 2011, in some of the markets: maize prices in Kisangani and Bunia showed a declining trend whereas local rice and cassava flour prices increased. According to international agencies the situation of hunger is extremely alarming with very high prevalence of undernourisment. The FAO Global Early Warning Information System (GIEWS) reports severe localized food insecurity. The already dire food security conditions are aggravated by p ersistent conflict and insecurity. It was estimated that some 1.7 million people are internally displaced. International agencies continue assisting affected population together with refugees and IDPs throughout the country.

    Prices of rice have generally been stable since the beginning of 2010, but are higher than the pre-high food crises period. Political tensions with Thailand continue. Moreover Cambodia's paddy crop was adversely affected by late rains and this could result in higher levels of food insecurity. GIEWS assessed that there is generally satisfactory food security throughout the country while other agencies agree that in the long term hunger will increase. The Government has implemented the Recta ngular Strategy-Phase II to scale up rice production and has expanded social protection programmes to support vulnerable people.
