Malawi - Bulletin #4: The harvest brings lower food prices, April 2016
  • Food prices have fallen by 40 percent countrywide since March, increasing household purchasing power.
  • However, this trend is expected to be short lived due to low crop yields. The low yields mean households are still using negative coping strategies.
  • Better food availability and cheaper maize have improved household perceptions of food security, but sentiment scores remain negative.
