Democratic Republic of the Congo

May 2024
Maize (second), yams, rice (north) and cassava (south) are currently in growth stage under below-average rainfall conditions. Kwilu, top cereal producing unit accounting for the 10.6% of the national share, received 46% less rain in the last 30 days, when compared to the long term average. Despite this, biomass is still recorded in-average across the country, thanks to the precipitations of the previous months. Water balance ASAP warnings are present on 10 provinces. As the cassava and maize harvest season is approaching in the south, the situation needs to be carefully monitored in the next decades. According to UNHCR, as of 30 April 2024, DRC is the first country with the largest Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) in Africa.
