"We are now pulling together an assessment team to determine the extent of crop failure and the likely impact on the country’s food supply, but initial findings are grim... "
Erratic weather patterns in southern Africa, from searing droughts to raging floods, have devastated harvest prospects for millions of people and could spell yet another year of widespread food shortages, the severely under-funded United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) warned today.
“All indications are that southern Africa could be heading for yet another year of critical food shortages,” WFP Regional Director Amir Abdulla said. “Assessments need to be carried out as soon as possible to determine the impact agricultural losses may have on these groups, but already the early indications for several countries are alarming.”
