FOOD SECURITY SNAPSHOT

• Planting of 2013 cereal crops is concluded in southern area, while it is ongoing in northern areas

• Reduced planted area expected in most conflict-affected areas

• Timely onset and good amounts of seasonal rains favouring crops and pasture

• Prices of sorghum, the main food staple, on the rise in most markets

• About 1.2 million people are estimated to be severely food insecure until next harvest starts in August/September
