Most households in Southern Africa depend on maize as their main source of food and energy, given the high volumes and ease with which it is produced. Alternative food crops that are consumed as substitutes include rice, wheat, sorghum, millet, and tubers such as cassava and potatoes. Consumption of these substitutes occurs mainly when maize is not available or among those households in areas where such substitutes are more easily available (for example, cassava in northern Mozambique).

Mozambique decriminalized its homosexuality laws last week. Until then, the country’s old, colonial penal code – in what it termed as “vices against nature” – had made same-sex relations a crime. A new penal code now removes those prejudiced words and legal barriers to same-sex relations.

• Conflict in Yemen is causing increasing food insecurity.
As of June, at least 6 million people are facing Emergency (IPC Phase 4) food insecurity. Millions more could easily fall into the emergency conditions unless a political solution is found quickly.
Currently, the majority of rural households are able to meet their basic food needs through own crops, market purchases, and expansion of the typical livelihood strategies. Minimal acute food insecurity outcomes (IPC Phase 1) are expected to continue until September in most of the country.
This season’s crop performance was poor across much of southern Africa, particularly in the region’s surplus-producing areas. Preliminary estimates indicate that national maize harvests in South Africa and Malawi were the lowest in more than five years. However, as a result of above-average carry-over stocks from the 2014/15 marketing year, aggregate regional supply is expected to be near average. Countries with significant production deficits this year, including Malawi and Zimbabwe, will likely experience an early start of the lean season and limited food access for poor households.
