Angola: Vulnerability Assessment Committee Results 2017

Situation

Angola experienced average rainfall during the 2016/17 rainy season except in Cunene Province. Cunene province experienced poor crop production and Cuando Cubango experienced the prevalence of livestock diseases particularly foot-and-mouth, which also resulted in death of cattle.

On the one hand, there was an increase in the prices of fertilizers for potatoes and maize in Huambo and Bié Provinces, on the other hand, there has been a considerable increase in food prices, especially prices of staple food consumed by poorer households. Households in Cunene, Bie and Huambo provinces faced more serious challenges in terms of coping and livelihood protection deficit.
