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.

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.

Le PAM a appuyé une nouvelle fois le Commissariat à la Sécurité Alimentaire pour la réalisation de l’enquête de suivi de la sécurité alimentaire des ménages (FSMS) de décembre 2014. Les données ont été collectées entre le 18 décembre 2014 et le 7 janvier 2015 sur un échantillon de 5642 ménages regroupés en 10 strates.

Les taux d’insécurité alimentaire sont relativement élevés pour une période post récolte. En effet, 23,8% des ménages sont en insécurité alimentaire au mois de janvier 2015 contre 18,5%  la même période de l’année passée. En terme d’effectif,  837 000 personnes sont affectées par l’insécurité alimentaire dont 197 000 sont en insécurité alimentaire sévère.  L’insécurité alimentaire connait une évolution importante au Tagant (31,4%) mais les wilayas du sud du pays restent les plus touchées par le phénomène: Hodh Echarghi (37,1%), Gorgol (35,1%), Guidimakha (33,1%).  Cette nette dégradation de la situation résulte d’une pluviométrie déficitaire dans de nombreuses zones du pays au cours de l’année 2014.
