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.

  • Food insecurity is likely to increase significantly during the next lean season due to two consecutive years of poor maize production, much reduced food stocks, low import capacity and a slowdown in economic recovery after a decade long economic recession and high unemployment rates.
  • Dollarization reduced inflation, capital flight and improved savings ability; but these benefits are being undermined by limited access to credit lines, low foreign reserves and reduced competitiveness of local products.
