FOOD SECURITY SNAPSHOT

  • Generally poor rains since December 2014 have lowered production prospects for 2015 cereal crop

  • Imports of maize declined in 2014/15, reflecting a recovery in 2014 cereal output from previous year’s drought-reduced level

  • Food security conditions expected to be stressed in some areas in 2015, due to anticipated decrease in cereal production. This follows generally improved conditions in 2014
