Southern Africa Weekly Report (16th to 22nd June 2015)


Regional Overview

Regional crop production, especially for cereal, is expected to decrease as a result of the uncharacteristic and erratic 2014/15 rainfall season. Significant maize production declines from the five-year average are forecasted for Zimbabwe (37 per cent), Namibia (39 per cent), South Africa (22 per cent) and Malawi (22 per cent). The results of national vulnerability assessments, which are expected around late-July, will provide a clearer picture of the scale of food insecurity.
