Key points:

  • Seasonal precipitation forecasts indicate possible cumulative rainfall deficits in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone during the rainy season.
  • The pastoralist situation is characterized by pasture depletion and the disruption of transhumance routes in conflict areas of the region.
  • Market prices are decreasing or stable in most markets, partly due to weak demand from households.
  • According to results of the PREGEC, 4,895,000 people are in the food security crisis phase or above in the Gambia, Mali, Niger, Senegal and Chad.
