Key Developments

Persistent droughts, erratic rainfall, and other shocks have exacerbated food insecurity across the Southern Africa region—including in Angola, Botswana, ComorosEswatiniLesothoMadagascarMalawiMozambiqueNamibia, South Africa, Zambia, and Zimbabwe — extending the agricultural lean season, which typically lasts through March in much of the region, and increasing humanitarian needs. 

Increased COVID-19 transmission and associated containment measures have disrupted livelihoods, limiting access to food and income-generating opportunities. 

U.S. Government partners continue to deliver lifesaving food, health, nutrition, protection, shelter, and water, sanitation, and hygiene assistance to vulnerable populations in 11 Southern African countries.
