    An FAO/WFP Crop and Food Security Assessment Mission (CFSAM) visited South Sudan from 4 to 14 December 2017 to estimate the cereal production during 2017 and assess the overall food security situation. The CFSAM reviewed the findings of several Crop Assessment Missions conducted at planting and harvest time in the different agro-ecological zones of the country from May to December 2017. As during 2014, 2015 and 2016, all Assessment Missions were carried out by a Task Force Team that comprised staff from the Ministry of Agriculture and Food Security (MAFS), the National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) and FAO. Task Force Team members have been trained during the past years to conduct rapid assessments using established protocols and techniques, such as driving and walking transects, scoring standing crops according to yield, and livestock according to body condition, perform key informant interviews and farmer case studies. In addition, supported by the FAO/AFIS Project, 39 County Crop Monitoring Committees (CCMCs) have been formed in 2016 and 2017, with a view to extending the responsibility of collecting more objective data at local level.

    Une mission conjointe FAO/PAM d'évaluation des récoltes et de la sécurité alimentaire (CFSAM) s'est rendue au Sri Lanka du 12 au 29 mars 2017 à la demande du Ministère de l'agriculture pour estimer la production de paddy de la campagne principale maha de 2016/17, évaluer les récoltes de paddy en cours de la campagne secondaire yala de 2017 et analyser la sécurité alimentaire des ménages. Cette demande fait suite à une période prolongée de faibles précipitations sur la plupart du pays tout au lon g de 2016 qui a suscité de sérieuses préoccupations concernant la production agricole – en particulier de riz – et l'élevage en 2017. La Mission a évalué l'impact de la sécheresse sur les récoltes de la campagne principale de 2017 et estimé le déficit alimentaire prévu pour 2017. Elle a également apprécié la situation globale de la sécurité alimentaire et identifié les principaux besoins d’assistance agricole du pays en attendant les prochaines récoltes de la campagne principale.
