Key Messages

  • The satisfactory evolution of the agropastoral campaign, combined with agricultural employment opportunities and favorable market access conditions, facilitate food access and livelihoods conditions for households. This contributes to maintaining Minimum Acute Food Insecurity (IPC Phase 1) until at least January 2020.

  • Improved conditions in the pastoral area in September led to an improvement in animal body conditions and milk production. However, the effects of the prolonged lean season resulted in low sales of animal products to cover food needs and protect livelihoods. Food insecurity remains in Stress (IPC Phase 2) conditions among poor pastoral households.

  • In conflict areas of the Diffa, Tillabery and Tahoua regions, IDPs continue to depend on in-kind payments, market purchases, donations and aid, as well as wood / straw sales, daily labor and small-scale work. trade. The inadequacy of these resources leads to a food deficit in Tillabery, where poor households suffer from Crisis food insecurity (IPC Phase 3). Food aid helps keep households in Stress (IPC Phase 2!) In Diffa.

  • In the Maradi region, the installation of Nigerian refugees causes an increase in the size of host households from an average of 7 to 10-14 people. This involves sharing the food ration and possibly reducing food consumption. Moreover, a possible increase in the prevalence of severe acute malnutrition as measured in August 2019 by ACF (MUAC) generates some concern.
