RIASCO action plan for Southern Africa - Revised regional response plan for the El Niño-induced drought in Southern Africa December 2016 - April 2017

UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, Regional Interagency Standing Committee, Southern Africa, (2016)

El Niño conditions persisting during the 2015/16 planting season have caused the worst drought in 35 years in Southern Africa, resulting in a second consecutive failed harvest. This has created severe food shortages and compounded existing vulnerabilities. Since July 2016, Namibia and Botswana have declared national drought emergencies, in addition to the declarations made earlier by Lesotho, Malawi, Swaziland and Zimbabwe. Madagascar issued a letter of solidarity with the SADC Appeal, and Mozambique has maintained a red alert in affected areas.
