A major food shortage is affecting six countries in Southern Africa, most critically in Malawi, Zimbabwe and Zambia. Significant problems are also occurring in Swaziland and Lesotho, and amongst populations of internally displaced people in Angola. Acute food shortages are being reported in both rural and urban areas. FAO-GIEWS estimates that over two million people in all three countries urgently require food assistance. While 460,000 MT of food is required to sustain the region, just 130,000 of this has been sourced, leaving a 333,000 MT shortfall.
