DR-2016-000048-TMP Drought East Timor Due to the current El Niño effect, Timor Leste's annual rainy/wet season (which normally lasts from December to March) has been low - and delayed in some areas - leading to drought conditions in many parts of the country. A rapid assessment conducted by the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries (MAF) estimates that at least 120,000 people have been severely affected across five districts (Baucau, Covalima, Lautem, Oecusse and Viqueque), with 45.9 per cent of households across the country likely to experience food insecurity from April to June. In addition to its effects on food security, the situation has resulted in water shortages and directly affected the livelihoods of thousands of people, especially rural and agriculture-dependent populations. Some communities that are experiencing sporadic rainfall are able to replant short-duration crops (as part of the second cropping period). However, the effects of El Niño are largely affecting communities that are more reliant on livestock and single-season farming. The loss of livestock for many translates to the loss of their ?banked? wealth and will have an impact on the ability of such households to send their children to school and to pay other household expenses. Since livestock is also used for tilling the land, loss in livestock will make it harder for farmers to prepare their land for replanting.
