The on-going El Nino event, officially declared in March, will remain active throughout 2015 and is very likely to extend into the first quarter of 2016.
The event is now strengthening towards its peak intensity which should be reached in late 2015. There is a significant chance that this event could be close or even exceed the strongest levels on record. 
The event is being influencing all growing seasons of the northern hemisphere, as well as those of equatorial regions (Horn of Africa, Indonesia) of late 2015, and will be influencing those of southern Africa and South America from late 2015 to early 2016. 
The impacts are wide ranging and generally negative in countries facing food insecurity.

  • En août, 316 ménages assistés par le PAM ont participé aux enquêtes mVAM dans la région de Diffa, soit une augmentation de 11% par rapport au mois précédent.
  • Les résultats indiquent que 97% de ces ménages ont une consommation limite ou acceptable, et que la proportion des ménages ayant une consommation alimentaire pauvre est passée de 8% à 3%.
  • Aucun ménage n’a été contraint de recourir à des stratégies d’adaptation pour accéder à la nourriture. Cette situation est principalement due à la régularité de l’assistance alimentaire.

  • Les résultats indiquent que 8% des ménages interviewés ont une consommation alimentaire pauvre.
  • Dans l’ensemble, la situation alimentaire est globalement satisfaisante, vu que plus de 80% des ménages ont une consommation alimentaire limite ou acceptable.
  • A Diffa, par contre, le niveau élevé de l’indice des stratégies de survie traduit une situation alimentaire sous pression dans une région confrontée à une crise humanitaire complexe.
  • Avec la régularité de l’assistance alimentaire, on devrait logiquement s’attendre à une baisse progressive de cet indice au cours des prochains mois.
  • Dans les situations d’urgence complexe, où l’insécurité ne permet pas d’accéder à certaines zones, le mVAM apparaît comme une alternative pour combler le besoin en informations.

The WFP Seasonal Monitor examines satellite imagery of rainfall and vegetation in order to assess the development of the growing season and how such conditions might impact the lives and livelihoods of the resident populations. Real time satellite data streams and seasonal forecasts are analyzed to highlight potential developments that may be of  humanitarian concern.

This Seasonal Monitor webpage provides real time satellite data streams and seasonal forecasts to highlight changes in the progression of the agricultural season that may be of concern. This analysis is also presented in Power Point and report format.

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.
