FAO 15 December 2014

Highlights in Africa :
- In Western Africa, the outbreak of the Ebola virus disease in Guinea, Liberia
and Sierra Leone continues to affect the food security situation of large
numbers of people through the disruption of livelihoods, farming activities
and markets. Moreover, adverse weather conditions in 2014 caused a sharp drop
in cereal and pasture production in large parts of the Sahel, notably in Cabo Verde,
the Gambia, Guinea-Bissau and Senegal.
- In Central Africa, the food security situation remains grave in the Central
African Republic with one-third of the population in need of urgent assistance.
In eastern Democratic Republic of the Congo, continued population displacements together with recent damaging floods
aggravated food insecurity.
- In Eastern Africa, the food security situation improved in most countries following recent harvests. However, in
Somalia and the Sudan food prices remained at very high levels negatively impacting on food access.
- In Southern Africa, prevailing stable maize prices reflect ample supplies from 2014’s bumper output, contributing to
an improved food security situation.
- In North Africa, a slightly below-average cereal crop was gathered in 2014. However, sharp reductions were recorded in
Morocco due to erratic rains, while in Tunisia production recovered from the previous year’s poor harvest
