Abnormal rainfall patterns during 2014/2015 have contributed to a spike in food insecurity, which is currently affecting at least 27.4 m people regionally (and this excludes Angola, which has yet to publish official figures; and Madagascar, which did not present to SADC, but where 1.9 m people are food insecure, of which 460,000 people are severely so). In Malawi and Zimbabwe, 2.8 m and 1.5 m people are food insecure respectively.

2015 FUNDING OUTLOOK
"We are raising as much, or more, as we’ve ever raised. Our traditional donors are as generous as ever.
It’s that the number of crises is outpacing the generosity. We need those who have given to us to give more. And we need more donors to support the gap.” WFP Executive Director Ertharin Cousin, speaking in August 2015 to Philanthropy Age magazine.
Food stocks are stretched and WFP requires immediate contributions to meet the needs of vulnerable people in Burundi as well as new arrivals and existing refugees in the four countries. In particular, the Burundi operation risks critical pipeline breaks as early as December.
Refugees from Burundi continue to cross borders into neighbouring countries. As at 12 November, more than 216,000 new Burundian refugees had arrived in the DRC, Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda.
The pre-elections contingency plan launched in April 2015 called for US$ 58 million for both preparedness and response for up to six months. Agencies have been using their internal funding mechanisms or diverting funding from their regular programmes to respond to the new situation. The revised post-elections plan (from September 2015 to February 2016) requires a total of $39.3 million to prepare and respond to the needs of up to 400,000 people. Agencies reported that they had received about $7.1 million by November 11, 2015.
