#Food crisis expected to hit #Uganda

CLIMATE CHANGE IS A HOAX. DEFORESTATION IS PERFECTLY FINE. DO NOT HARVEST RAIN WATER. BUY A JERRY CAN! Sinze eyaletta ennaku.

Staple food prices atypically increasing alongside prospects of below-average harvest
Key Messages
  • Following below-average 2016 production, some poor households in Karamoja have depleted household food stocks in December, three months earlier than normal. Many are atypically dependent on markets and above-average prices are lowering food access. In Napak, Kaabong, and Moroto, poor households are expected to be in Crisis (IPC Phase 3) in April and May, the peak of the lean season.
  • October to December second season rainfall was below average and erratic in many bimodal areas and December harvests are expected to be below average. This will be the second consecutive season of poorer than normal harvests in many bimodal areas. Due primarily to poor production prospects, staple food prices atypically increased between October and November. Food availability and access are lower than normal and some poor households are Stressed (IPC Phase 2).
  • According to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), over 350,000 South Sudanese have fled to Uganda since July 2016. Newly arrived refugees are heavily dependent on humanitarian assistance and are likely Stressed (IPC Phase 2!). UNHCR’s funding appeal for South Sudanese refugees is only 65 percent funded. If funding gaps limit humanitarian assistance to refugees, it is expected many will be in Crisis (IPC Phase 3) between February and May 2017.
  • RELIEF WEB.
