In summary, the main causes of household food insecurity across the region can be attributed to a reduced access to food (in particular non-staples), a result of (1) lack of sufficient livelihood and income generating options at the household level (2) high food prices which are a result of supply – demand imbalances which is further exacerbated by the lack of sufficient food being produced (availability) in the area. The above factors naturally result in inadequate food consumption and poor dietary diversity for large sections of the population. Poor nutritional status amongst children is a result of (a) a combination of high incidence of fever, malaria, diarrhoea, poor sanitation facilities, lack of Vitamin A supplementation and (b) poor dietary diversity (rather than a lack of food per se).

The overall objective of this post-harvest assessment was to determine the level of crop and livestock production and output in Karamoja during the 2013 season and the resultant implications for the current and projected food security situation in the region in 2014. This assessment follows up on the recommendations of the joint rapid food security assessment conducted by FAO, WFP, OPM and MAAIF in August 2013, and is therefore intended to inform the short-term and intermediate (2014) planning and response analysis processes among government, donors, UN, NGO and other stakeholders in the food security sector.
