26 February 2015

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.

  • Selon les résultats de l’enquête de suivi post-distribution (PDM) réalisée par le PAM en juin 2014, près de 82% des ménages installés sur les camps de réfugiés Maliens possèdent au moins un téléphone portable.
  • Le PAM et ses partenaires ont donc initié un projet pilote pour réaliser des enquêtes auprès des ménages du camp d’Abala (région de Tillabéry) en utilisant la technologie mobile.
  • La première collecte a eu lieu du 12 au 18 janvier 2015, et 74% des ménages qui se sont portés volontaires pour participer à cette enquête ont répondu aux appels téléphoniques.
  • Sur le plan méthodologique, les résultats du premier round confirment que les enquêtes par téléphone permettent de collecter des données fiables sur la consommation alimentaire et sur les principales sources de nourriture des ménages.

  • 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.
