Special Alert No. 343

Southern Africa

Erratic rains and an intense dry period in January lowers 2018 cereal production prospects in Southern Africa.


  • Erratic precipitation and well below-average rains in January have lowered Southern Africa’s overall 2018 cereal production prospects.
  • Current national maize stocks are forecast at above-average levels due to the record outputs in 2017; this should partly cushion the expected production declines in 2018.
  • Reduced harvests are still foreseen to intensify food insecurity in 2018, increasing the number of people in need of assistance; however, humanitarian needs expected to remain below the levels of 2016.
