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.

April 2015:

  • État d’approvisionnement des marchés en céréales : L’offre de céréale sur les marchés ruraux est en baisse par rapport au mois de mars 2015, mais l’état d’approvisionnement des marchés reste satisfaisant dans l’ensemble compte tenu de la bonne production céréalière 2014/2015.
  • Tendance des prix des céréales : Les prix aux consommateurs, aux producteurs et aux gros sont en hausses légères par rapport au mois de mars 2015. Par contre ils sont en baisses par rapport à la moyenne quinquennale.
  • Termes de l’échange (ToT) petits ruminants/céréales : De façon globale, les ToT sont en détérioration par rapport à l’année passée à Gao (-5%) et à Tombouctou (-30%) ; en amélioration à Mopti (+18%).
  • Valeur Alpha : Du point de vue de l’analyse coût-efficacité, les transferts monétaires sont mieux appropriés que la distribution de vivres dans les zones de Cash & Voucher (Gao, Mopti et Tombouctou).
  • L’insécurité perturbe négativement le fonctionnement des marchés dans les régions du nord et limite l’accès des ménages aux marchés.
