    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.

    Thanks to a good harvest, maize prices went sharply down from peak levels. However rice prices remained steady. Food security conditions throughout the country are stable thanks to households' good food stocks; localized food insecurity is observed only in some of the southern and southwestern district areas. Tropical depression which caused extensive rains affected harvests in the southern and southwestern areas where people were not able to store their food stocks. The Government is supporting production with input distribution through its Secretar a de Agricultura y Ganader a (SAG).

    Coarse grain prices have remained mostly stable across the country up to July, reflecting ample supplies; however prices have began to increase in August as the lean season has approached. Food security conditions during the reporting period have been generally stable; however since June food security started to deteriorate in the north and northeast regions and agencies classify these areas as stressed food security. Although late start of rains was reported in some parts of the country, cr ops and vegetation conditions are good with favourable production prospects. The Government is implementing a number of policies to counter the rising food prices such as the usual subsidized sale of basic food staples.
