Market situation update for the 1st and 2nd week of August 2015. Key highlights include:
- The supply and availability of food commodities continued to improve across the majority of the governorates following the opening of Aden ports and roads connecting to surrounding governorates. However, despite minor improvements in the southern governorates, availability of fuel (diesel, petrol and cooking gas) remained to be scarce in most parts of the country.
- Prices of commodities continued to drop in most of the governorates as a result of improved availability and supply. National average price of wheat flour decreased by 16% from last month but still 15% higher than the pre-crisis level. National average price of fuel also reduced by over 35% during the reporting week compared to last month, but 120% higher than the pre-crisis period.
- During the reporting period, the national average cost of partial food basket was about 5% lower than last month but still over 25% more than the pre-crisis time. The overall food security situation during the first two weeks of August is believed to be slightly improved compared to July 2015.
- Nonetheless, the high level of food insecurity is likely to persist in the most affected governorates where conflicts and airstrikes has still continued.
