    • Although decreased rains are expected in West Africa, high ground moisture sustains the risk for floods.
    • Poorly distributed rains strengthen seasonal deficits over parts of central Ethiopia, South Sudan and Uganda

    1) While a recent increase in August precipitation is expected to lead to more favorable ground moisture, a delayed onset and uneven rainfall distribution observed during the June-September season may negatively impact cropping and pastoral conditions in the region.

    2) Despite recent increase in rainfall, the much delayed start to the rainfall season has resulted in drought, which has severely impacted ground conditions and already led to livestock death across parts of north-central and eastern Ethiopia.

    3) Heavy August rainfall has led to a saturation of ground conditions and localized flooding in several regions of West Africa. The continuation of heavy rainfall remains forecast across the region for the upcoming outlook.

    4) Well below-average rainfall during August has led to a strengthening of moisture deficits throughout several provinces in southern South Sudan and northern Uganda. Below-average rainfall is expected in the region for the upcoming outlook period.

    - Heavy rains trigger flooding in parts of Nigeria.
    - Suppressed rainfall continues over parts of southern Ethiopia, South Sudan and Uganda.

    1) While a recent increase in August precipitation is expected to lead to more favorable ground moisture, a delayed onset and uneven rainfall distribution observed during the June-September season may negatively impact cropping and pastoral conditions in the region.

    2) Despite recent increase in rainfall, the much delayed start to the rainfall season has resulted in drought, which has severely impacted ground conditions and already led to livestock death across parts of north-central and eastern Ethiopia.

    3) Well above-average seasonal has led to a saturation of ground conditions in several regions of West Africa. The continuation of heavy rainfall forecast is expected to sustain the risk of flooding across the region for the upcoming outlook period.

    4) Well below-average rainfall during August has led to a strengthening of moisture deficits throughout several provinces in southern South Sudan and northern Uganda. Below-average rainfall is expected in the region for the upcoming outlook period.

    5) In early September, locally torrential rains resulted in floods, displaced populations, and damages to crops and infrastructure in the Kebbi, Sokoto, Zamfara, and Kano states of northwestern Nigeria. Heavy rains and a dam failure have also led to flooding, affecting thousands of people in the Gombe and Adamawa states of the country. Average to above-average rainfall is forecast for both regions during the middle of September.

    - Suppressed rainfall continues in the Gulf of Guinea region.

    - Dryness worsens throughout parts of Ethiopia.

    1) While a recent increase in August precipitation has led to more favorable ground moisture, a delayed onset and uneven rainfall distribution observed during the June-September season may negatively impact cropping and pastoral conditions in the region.

    2) Poorly distributed rainfall has resulted in drought, which has severely impacted ground conditions and already led to livestock death across parts of north-central and eastern Ethiopia.

    3) Below-average rainfall since August has led to a strengthening of moisture deficits throughout several provinces in southern South Sudan and northern Uganda. Below-average rainfall is expected in the region for the upcoming outlook period.

    4) Below-average rainfall over several bimodal areas of Cote d’Ivoire, Ghana, Togo, Benin, and Nigeria has led to a rapid strengthening of moisture deficits and a degradation of ground conditions. Suppressed precipitation is expected during in the region during late-September.

    • Continuation of suppressed rainfall along coastal Gulf of Guinea regions and enhanced rain across the Sahel and far western Gulf of Guinea.
    • Dryness persists throughout parts of Ethiopia.

    1) Poorly distributed rainfall has resulted in drought, which has severely impacted ground conditions and already led to livestock death across parts of north-central and eastern Ethiopia.
    2) Below-average rainfall since August has led to a strengthening of moisture deficits throughout several provinces in southern South Sudan and northern Uganda. Below-average rainfall is expected in the region for the upcoming outlook period.
    3) Below-average rainfall over several bimodal areas of Cote d’Ivoire, Ghana, Togo, Benin, and Nigeria has led to a rapid strengthening of moisture deficits and a degradation of ground conditions.
    4) High moisture levels resulting from heavy rains last week and a wetter than average season overall have led to a heightened risk of flooding. Flooding has been reported in northern Senegal. Increased chances of heavy rain for western Gulf of Guinea nations during the upcoming outlook period may trigger flooding in these regions.

    • Beneficial increase in rainfall along bimodal Gulf of Guinea regions and continued heavy rainfall across the far western Gulf of Guinea.

    • Many parts of the greater horn receive early season rains.

    1) Poorly distributed rainfall has resulted in drought, which has severely impacted ground conditions and already led to livestock death across parts of northcentral and eastern Ethiopia.

    2) Below-average rainfall since August has led to a strengthening of moisture deficits throughout several provinces in southern South Sudan and northern Uganda. Closer to normal rainfall is expected during the upcoming outlook period.

    3) Below-average rainfall over several bimodal areas of Cote d’Ivoire, Ghana, Togo, Benin, and Nigeria has led to a rapid strengthening of moisture deficits and a degradation of ground conditions.

    Heavy rains have continued for far western Gulf of Guinea, while much drier conditions prevailed farther east across West Africa.

    Heavy rain continues for portions of East Africa raising flooding concerns.

    1) Poorly distributed rainfall has resulted in drought, which has severely impacted ground conditions and already led to livestock death across parts of northcentral and eastern Ethiopia.

    2) Below-average rainfall since August has led to a strengthening of moisture deficits throughout several provinces in southern South Sudan and northern Uganda. Dry conditions now stretch into Lake Victoria regions of western Kenya.

    3) Persistent Below-average rainfall since August over several bimodal areas of Cote d’Ivoire, Ghana,
    Togo, Benin, and Nigeria has led to a strengthening of moisture deficits and a degradation of ground conditions resulting in drought.

    4) Heavy rains over the last week have led to swelling rivers in the region. The White Nile and Sobat Rivers in northeastern South Sudan are forecast to be near or above flood stage. In Somalia and Southern Ethiopia, the Shabelle River, and more nominally, the Jubba River are forecasted to be near or above flood stage as a result of heavy rainfall this past week.
    Additional forecasted heavy rain threatens to exasperate the situation, adding in the threat for flash flooding

    • Mostly near-average conditions have been observed across West Africa during this past week.
    • Heavy rain continues for portions of southern Ethiopia and Somalia, raising flooding concerns in East Africa.

    1) Poorly distributed rainfall has resulted in drought, which has severely impacted ground conditions and already led to livestock death across parts of north-central and eastern Ethiopia.

    2) Below-average rainfall since August has led to a strengthening of moisture deficits throughout several provinces in southern South Sudan and northern Uganda. Dry conditions now stretch into Lake Victoria regions of western Kenya.

    3) Persistent Below-average rainfall since August over several bimodal areas of Cote d’Ivoire, Ghana, Togo, Benin, and Nigeria has led to a strengthening of moisture deficits and a degradation of ground conditions resulting in drought.

    4) Heavy rains over the last 2 weeks have led to swelling rivers in Somalia and Southern Ethiopia. The Shabelle River, and more nominally, the Jubba River are forecasted to be near or above flood stage. Flood risk is high for the middle and lower reaches of the Shabelle and moderate for the lower portions of the Jubba River. Additional forecasted rain threatens to exasperate the situation, continuing the threat for river and flash flooding.

    5) Erratic and poorly distributed rainfall over the past month has led to moisture deficits to begin the season in the Sugar cane growing region of South Africa. Vegetation indices reveal already degrading conditions on the ground.

    Libya continues to be the main departure and transit point for departure from North Africa towards Europe. As of 18 November 2016, the Libyan Coast Guard rescued/intercepted a total of 12,891 people in different locations along the Libyan coast, mainly Az Zawiyah, Tripoli and Tajurah. Since January 2016, Libyan local authorities have recovered more than 1,000 bodies of people who drowned while attempting to cross the Mediterranean. The insecurity and volatile context in Libya prevents humanitarian actors, local authorities and UNHCR to support the rescue/interception at sea operations in all of the departure and disembarkation points along the Libyan coast.

    WaPOR: database dissemination portal and APIs

    The FAO portal to monitor Water Productivity through Open access of Remotely sensed derived data (WaPOR) monitors and reports on agriculture water productivity over Africa and the Near East.

    It provides open access to the water productivity database and its thousands of underlying map layers, it allows for direct data queries, time series analyses, area statistics and data download of key variables associated to water and land productivity assessments.  

    The portal’s services are directly accessible through dedicated FAO WaPOR APIs, which will eventually be also available through the FAO API store

    Water productivity assessments and other computation–intensive calculations are powered by Google Earth Engine.

    The first, beta release of WaPOR is available as of 14 April 2017. The beta release publishes Level 1 (continental, 250 m resolution) data from April 2009 to December 2016. WaPOR will be increasingly improved during the course of 2017 and beyond.
