  • Despite a good 2012/2013 crop year, local prices in Niger have not recovered from the 2011/2012 Sahel food crisis. The price of millet, the main staple, is above last year’s crisis levels and is expected to further increase in the coming months, during the lean season.
  • Most millet markets, particularly those in the main producing areas are on alert; above expected seasonal levels since the beginning of the 2012 harvest.
  • Disruption of food commodity trade with Nigeria, producer storage strategies and government procurement are maintaining millet prices high.

Atypical drought conditions in the US causes wheat, maize and soya prices to soar (figure 1). According to data record-ed by the World Bank in July 2012, wheat increased by 50%, maize by 45% and soya by 30% since mid-June 2012. By contrast, rice prices remained stable until July 2012. Compared to the 5-year average, maize, soya and wheat increased by 59%, 44% and 31%, respectively, and rice increased only by 8%. A new bullish phase in inter-national markets could impact regional markets and the food access of West African households already affected by the current nutrition and food crisis.
