Although many households are using negative coping strategies, most are consuming an acceptable diet except households in Ninewa and IDPs in Akre (Ninewa) and Samarra (Salah Al-Din).
In Al-Wahda and Al-Moalmin neighborhoods (Fallujah), households have reported severe food shortages for the third month in a row.
The cost of the standard food basket has fallen in all monitored governorates, except in Diyala and Salah Al-Din. However, in Anbar and Ninewa food markets are highly volatile with soaring food prices and households have irregular income.
