[size=52]The United Nations Food Program: The price of the food basket in Iraq has risen to 14%[/size]

[size=45]The United Nations World Food Program in Iraq revealed yesterday, Saturday, that the price of the food basket has risen to 14 percent after the devaluation of the local currency against the dollar.[/size]
[size=45]The representative of the World Food Program in Iraq, Abdul Rahman Megaj, said in press statements that the World Food Program monitors food prices, including the average food basket of 2,100 calories per day, and indicated that 10% of people use coping strategies to help their condition. Because they don't have enough to eat. Of these 10%, about 35% buy cheaper food, and from the same 10%, about 27% of them borrow food. And the regular monitoring of the World Food Program, last December, showed that about 3 million people in Iraq, including 731,000 internally displaced, They didn't have enough to eat.[/size]
[size=45]Megaj added that the World Food Program is working this year to reach 849,000 people across Iraq, through monthly support for the most vulnerable people, building resilience and school feeding programs, as well as government support, including digitization and reform of the public distribution system for food rations. The work of the World Food Program is expanding in the south of the country, where poverty indicators are among the worst, and the poverty rate in Iraq is about 31.7%.[/size]
[size=45]He revealed that the average price of the food basket has increased by 14% since the devaluation and is expected to remain at a new high level, which will directly affect the food security of the vulnerable population in Iraq, especially the displaced, returnees, refugees and other vulnerable Iraqis. “It is necessary to support imports of basic foodstuffs, to help reduce the impact of devaluation on the purchasing power of vulnerable Iraqis. It will also be necessary to formulate policies to increase the contribution to GDP from sectors other than oil, and to reduce economic dependence on oil exports through Boosting local food production.Regarding the ration card items, he explained that “according to the recommendations of the National White Book for Iraq, focusing the public distribution system on the most vulnerable people will be necessary to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of the system, and thus support the most needy families by providing the required foodstuffs monthly without interruption.[/size]
[size=45]He pointed out that data-based decision-making and policy planning are also important, and there is a need to monitor food security at the national level and early warning systems, link key data sets and determine when action is required, which will allow Iraq to respond proactively to food security needs. Under the United Nations, that “despite the government taking appropriate measures, the humanitarian and development actors in the country also need to increase efforts to mitigate the impact of devaluation on vulnerable groups, and additional support from donor countries will also be needed at this difficult time.[/size]
