Key Messages

  • In February rainfall continued to improve in parts of eastern and northern Namibe, southern Huila and northeastern Cunene Provinces.

  • Although pastoralists are yet to return to their homesteads, overall out migration has decreased. Continued improvements in rainfall could improve pasture conditions and may result in more households returning to their homesteads in the coming months. If this occurs, household food insecurity could improve through livestock production and sales.

  • For poor households in Kwanza Sul, Namibe, and Cunene Provinces, government food assistance and supplies from neighboring Huila Province are their main sources of food. These provinces are expected to face Stressed (IPC Phase 2) acute food insecurity outcomes through June.
