InterAction’s latest publication, Choose to Invest in Development and Humanitarian Relief FY2013, outlines key funding recommendations for the U.S. government to support accounts in the federal budget.

Much of Southern Africa has experienced well-below average rainfall this season, causing crops to wither after a similarly poor production year in 2001-2002. The drought, exacerbated by depleted reserves and high maize prices, has already forced hundreds of thousands of people throughout the region to rely on food aid for survival. The food insecurity is most acute in Zambia, Malawi and Zimbabwe, although Mozambique, Lesotho and Swaziland are also affected.
