An El Nino event active since March 2015 will almost certainly last through 2015 and is likely to extend into early 2016.
The intensity of this event is increasing with a peak expected in the last quarter of 2015 and there is a significant chance that it may become one of the strongest events of the past 30 years.
The timing of the event means that it will influence all growing seasons of the northern hemisphere (broadly from May to October) as well as those of equatorial regions (Horn of Africa, Indonesia) of late 2015 and of southern Africa and South America from late 2015 to early 2016.
The possible impacts are wide ranging and generally negative in countries facing food insecurity.

- L’insécurité alimentaire affecte 73% des ménages ruraux en octobre 2014, dont 39% dans sa forme sévère et 34% dans sa forme modérée.
- L’insécurité alimentaire a augmenté substantiellement par rapport à juin 2014 (+26%), ainsi qu’à septembre 2013 (13.5%).
- La détérioration de la sécurité alimentaire s’explique principalement par le retard et l’insuffisance des pluies Karan Karma à l’époque de la collecte des données dans les zones de mode de vie de l’intérieur du pays (excepté le nord-ouest pastoral) et d’autre part par une sécheresse prolongée dans les zones côtières, notamment dans la région d’Obock.
