Steps taken to investigate the price behavior
Observing a price pattern like the one presented above is not unusual.  The important
issue to determine is whether the price behavior will have a negative impact on food
security.  Again, a review of the production, consumption, and marketing patterns (both
domestic and external) provide some insights to whether the price behavior in the Kasese
Market is problematic.  This market is in a surplus producing area of Uganda and is
located near the Rwanda border.  Upon investigation it was determined that the increase
in prices does not show a food availability problem in this area.  The reason for the
increase in prices is a result of maize purchases that were to be exported to Rwanda.  The
exports had the result of bidding up the price of maize.
Action taken/follow up
After explaining the price pattern and that the behavior was not problematic for local
food security, there was no action taken.
