Alerte spéciale - Afrique de l’Est - 12 août 2009

Les récoltes de 2009 risquent d’être gravement compromises par une saison des pluies inadéquate, des conflits et des déplacements de populations. Des pluies tardives et inférieures à la moyenne, de mars à juillet, un peu partout en Afrique de l’Est, ont p

    GIEWS Special Alert - Eastern Africa - 12 August 2009
    Late and erratic rains in Eastern Africa raise food security concerns, El Niño an additional worry
    2009
    Also available in:

    The outlook for the 2009 crops raises serious concerns following inadequate seasonal rains, conflict and displacement. Late and below average rains, from March to July, in most of Eastern Africa affected agricultural activities and hindered crop growth. The low cumulative rainfall has also led to water shortages in pastoral areas of northern and south-eastern Kenya, south-eastern Ethiopia and inland regions of Djibouti.

    Special Alert No. 323 Parts of the Horn of Africa- January 2006 2006
    Also available in:

    Despite improved overall cereal harvests in 2005 in some countries of the Horn of Africa, recent severe droughts coupled with the effects of past and ongoing conflicts have put millions of people on the brink of starvation. Food shortages are particularly grave in Somalia where about 2 million people need humanitarian assistance. The food situation is also very serious in pastoral areas of northern and eastern Kenya, south-eastern Ethiopia and Djibouti. In the four Horn of Africa countries of So malia, Kenya, Djibouti and Ethiopia more than 11 million people are estimated to be in need of assistance.

    SAHEL WEATHER AND CROP SITUATION REPORT - September 2000 2000
    Also available in:

    Following generally widespread and abundant precipitation over the main agricultural zones of the Sahel in July, rains remained abundant over the western half of the Sahel in early August, decreased in mid-August but resumed in late August. Rains were particularly abundant during the first dekad of August in Senegal (even causing flooding in several areas), The Gambia and Guinea Bissau, during the second dekad in Mauritania and during the third dekad in Mali. In the centre of the Sahel, precipit ation remained below normal in Burkina Faso, except in the south and west. In Niger, below normal rainfall was registered in late August while in Chad, growing conditions were favourable in the Sudanian zone but unfavourable in the Sahelian zone. Satellite images for the first dekad of September shows that cloud coverage remained over most agricultural zones of the Sahel but that intensity of the rains decreased significantly except in south-western Senegal, Gambia and Chad. Rainfall is notably well below normal in northern and south-eastern Senegal, western Mali and most parts of Niger. Crops are generally developing satisfactorily in the western half of the Sahel region. Reduced rains affected crop development in central and eastern Burkina Faso, most parts of Niger and the Sahelian zone of Chad. Improved rains are needed in these areas to avoid water stress or crop failure. Following good rains in July, pastures have regenerated satisfactorily throughout the pastoral zone s of the Sahel. Grasshopper attacks are reported in Chad, Mali, Mauritania, Niger and Senegal. Small scale Desert Locust breeding is in progress in southern and central Mauritania. Some locusts are probably present and breeding in the Adrar des Iforas of Mali and in Aïr of Niger.
