Honduras: Acute Food Insecurity Situation in Southern Honduras December 2012 - January 2013
Región 13 - Valle y Choluteca
04.12.2012 > 31.01.2013


& next steps


The Valle and Choluteca region is classified Phase 1 from 4 December 2012 to 31 January 2013.  As from 31 January to 28 February 2013, Phase 1 is maintained for municipalities as Aramecina, Charity, Goascorán, Nacaome, Alliance, Amapala, San Lorenzo, Conception of Mary, Choluteca, El Corpus, El Triunfo, Marcovia, San Marcos Columbus and St. Anne Yusguare.  

The classification need to be reviewed for the municipalities of Apacilagua, Duyure, Morolica, Namasigue, Orocuina, Pespire, San Antonio Flores, San Isidro, San Jose, and San Francisco de Langue Coray. 

In Amapala, households dedicated to fishing could face a more complicated period due to an increasing pressure on resources in the Gulf and the tension on the jurisdiction of the water control. 

Last September, the food consumption level of households in some municipalities was acceptable. Given that current conditions are more favourable than in September, it I is possible to infer this situation quite certainly. 

Contributing factors related to food safety are maintained at favourable levels or normal: no adverse weather events, grain prices below the historical average and employment opportunities.
