FOOD SECURITY SNAPSHOT: Adequate rains favour 2020 crop conditions in most parts of country Cereal production in 2019 declined for second consecutive year to below‑average level, driven by rainfall deficits Imports in 2019/20 (April/May) expected at above‑average level due to reduced harvests Prices of maize increased to record highs in 2019, primarily due to reduced domestic supplies Estimated 2.3 million people are food insecure in January‑March 2020 period, more than double previous year’s figure
