    Although some local cereal prices declined slightly in August thanks to the arrival of new supplies from the Gu harvest, prices continue to be high. Moreover the slight reduction will not last long as local supplies continue to decrease. An estimated 4 million people are facing food crisis in Somalia, with 750,000 people at risk of death in the coming four months. FSNAU has declared famine in six areas of the country. Drought and civil insecurity are forcing tens of thousands of people to fl ee within and outside the country; by the end of August the number of displaced people increased to some 1.7 million. The crisis has left people in dire need of assistance while conflict exacerbates the situation and hampers humanitarian interventions.

    Wheat prices have been steadily rising since mid 2010 in most markets and are expected to remain high due to the reduced harvest. Localized food insecurity is reported in north-western areas where drought conditions affected wheat harvest which has dropped by 28% compared to the 2010 output. Drought, coupled with insecurity, has resulted in deteriorating food security conditions. Food access of vulnerable groups is extremely constrained. The Government is procuring food to build up stocks and assist food insecure people particularly in the drought-affected provinces.

    International prices of all major cereals declined in March. World wheat prices fell significantly, reflecting ample supplies, strong export competition and the extension of the Black Sea Grain Initiative (BSGI). A mix of factors, including ongoing harvests in South America, expected record output in Brazil and currency depreciation in Argentina, led to a decline in maize prices. International rice prices also eased in March, weighed by ongoing or imminent harvests in major Asian exporters. FAO’s analysis of the latest available data shows domestic staple food prices, despite some declines, continue to be very high in many countries in March 2023. Seasonal harvest pressures in parts of East Asia and ample availability of wheat from major exporters in the CIS (Asia and Europe) supported month‑on‑month declines in some staple food prices. Conflict and civil insecurity remained an underlying driver of food price increases in Haiti, and parts of East and West Africa, while weather related shocks were key contributing factors in parts of East and Southern Africa. In many countries, currency weaknesses and high transport costs continue to support elevated prices of both domestically produced and imported food commodities.
