Foreword by the Rt. Hon. Tony Blair, Prime Minister
The Department for International Development Clare Short today announced a further £30 million contribution to meet emergency assistance in Africa. £15m of the contribution will go to meeting emergency needs in Ethiopia and the other £15 million will be put to humanitarian assistance and recovery programmes across southern Africa.
Clare Short, Secretary of State for International Development said:
"I am very worried about food shortages in Africa.
(Reporting period: 16 November - 29 November)
The WFP EMOP is now 56.2% funded. There remains a shortfall of US$222.8 million.
On Monday 25 November, the Government of Zimbabwe imposed a sudden ban on the milling of GM maize in country. As a result the food aid pipeline for December faces severe shortages.
As of the end of October 2002, the response to the overall UN Consolidated Appeal for Southern Africa is 50%. The WFP Regional Appeal is 44% confirmed. We remain concerned about the lack of donor interest beyond the US, EC and UK.
The Government of Zambia announced its decision not to accept genetically modified food & requested that GM maize stocks be removed from the country. Zambia is the only country in southern Africa that has refused to accept GM grain. The effect is to make it impossible for the WFP to meet emergency needs in the country.
