PDF File Size: 486 KB | Download   
Highlights:
1. Compared to last year and long term averages, prices still remain significantly high especially in Eastern and Southern Africa, Asia and the Middle East.
2. In half of the 32 countries monitored, prices of main staple food commodities have declined over the last three months.
3. Overall, the cost of the food basket remains relatively high compared to the long term averages (2003-2007), except for the Philippines and Madagascar where the situation seems to return back to normal. However, the current socio-political tension may jeopardise this stability in Madagascar.
4. In West and Central Africa, staple food prices were generally stable during the last quarter, except in Congo DRC, Benin, Chad and Togo where prices have continued to rise. Compared to last year and long term averages, prices are very high in Benin, Chad, North Nigeria, Senegal and Togo.
5. In Eastern and Southern Africa, staple food prices were generally stable during the last quarter. Only Burundi, Lesotho, Sudan and Zimbabwe are still experiencing upward price trends in their main staple food.2 Prices remain very high compared to their long run averages, especially for roots and maize. Compared to last year and 5-year averages, prices are extremely high in Burundi, Malawi, Uganda, and Zimbabwe. They are very high in
Mozambique, Sudan and Zambia.
6. In Asia, prices have either remained stable or declined, implying that the cost of food basket in these countries has declined more when compared to other regions such as Africa. However, they remain significantly higher in comparison to the long run averages. Prices are extremely high compared to last year and 5-year averages in Afghanistan and Pakistan. They are very high in Sri Lanka and Nepal.
7. Other Selected Countries:3 Except in Haiti, all of these countries are still experiencing upward price trends in their main staple food. The price impact on overall food consumption is still high in Palestine. Compared to the long run average, prices are very high in all of these countries.
