Nigeria

June 2024
Rainfall in the last month across the country has been generally average to slightly below-average in some western parts. Crop conditions in the southern bi-modal parts of the season have benefited from the good rains and at mid-June are at average to above-average levels. On the contrary, below-average vegetation conditions are observed across the Middle Belt states and northern states. In most of these provinces, large parts of active crop areas (40%-80%) are facing a negative greenness anomaly. The below-average vegetation conditions can be probably attributed to the conflict in northeast, northwest, and northcentral states that limits access to farmlands and drives displacement. According to FEWSNET (May 2024), “in May conflict persisted at high levels in the Northeast and continues to intensify in the northwest and northcentral regions, leading to increased population displacement, limited dry season harvests, and restricted access to farmland for the upcoming main season activities”. The Copernicus C3S Multimodel seasonal rainfall forecast for the July-August 2024 period indicates a slight tilt in the odds to favor above-average rainfall across most parts of the country. According to the latest
Cadre Harmonisé analysis (March 2024), more than 31.7 million people (16.0% of the population analyzed) are projected to be in critical acute food insecurity state (Phase 3 or above) for the period of June-August 2024.
