Unfavourable crop prospects and food supply shortfall

AFRICA: In eastern Africa, the food situation in Somalia is rapidly deteriorating due to a poor harvest, the lowest in the last seven years. Elsewhere in the sub-region, notwithstanding an improved overall food supply situation, pastoralists continue to rely on food assistance due to prolonged drought. In southern Africa, emergency food assistance is to be provided in parts of Zimbabwe, Zambia and Mozambique where food shortages are emerging following a poor harvest. Elsewhere, food assistance continues to be necessary in DRC, Angola, Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone due to past or ongoing civil strife.
