Southern Africa is facing a looming crisis. Malawi, Zambia and Zimbabwe, in particular, have large national food shortages as a result of two years of poor harvests due to erratic rainfall and a range of economic factors. On top of this, the maize harvest for this year is likely to be poor in all three countries and stocks of maize grain, the staple diet, are liable to become scarce very quickly. Food shortages and rampant inflation are already a problem.
