HEA/Updated outcome analysis - Nigeria, June 2013

The results from the outcome analysis show that there is no need for emergency food or cash interventions to meet acute needs. In the Hadejia Valley Mixed Economy (HVM) Zone, floods led to reduced crop output and higher prices resulting in an initial food deficit of 21% of the annual food needs of most households. . An assumption in the analysis is that for the most part, affected households have some ways of coping with economic shocks. In this case, given higher cash crop prices in the current year, farmers in need of cash to buy staple grain will sell high value crops (rice, tomatoes, peppers and onions for example) to purchase a low value grain such as millet instead. With the cash generated, it is assumed that they will be able to cover the initial food deficit created from flood damages.
