    Despite an average maize harvest and an overall satisfactory supply outlook for 2018/19, the aggregate number of people affected by food insecurity has increased. Declining per capita maize production in the past ten years has heightened reliance on imports to satisfy consumption needs, increasing vulnerabilities to external shocks.

    High temperatures and below-average rainfall could affect the 2018 main season food output

    In DPRK, below-average rains, coupled with high temperatures from mid-July until mid-August, resulted in moisture stress during critical crop development stages in localized areas of the main crop producing provinces, including South and North Hwanghae, and South and North Hamgyong. According to official estimates the dry spell affected 98 892 hectares of cropland, mostly paddy, maize and potatoes, representing 8 percent of the average area cultivated in the main season. Any drop in production could further aggravate food insecurity.

    Pastoral households face dire food insecurity
    2018
    Also available in:
    No results found.

    Over one year of severe dry weather conditions affected forage and water availability in most pastoral and agro pastoral areas, causing massive livestock deaths. Weather forecasts point to below-average precipitations during the April-June “gu” season and a full recovery of rangelands and animal conditions is unlikely. Prices of livestock have surged to very high levels in recent months, mainly due to reduced market supply. The food security situation is critical in pastoral central and northern regions, where almost 2 million people are severely food insecure. Urgent support to pastoral agricultural livelihoods is needed to avert a deterioration of the food security situation and serious macro-economic implications.
