Malawi Infographic 2019: March - July 2019


In early March, a severe weather system formed off the eastern coast of Mozambique, bringing heavy rains and strong winds to Southern Malawi, before tracking back to the Mozambique channel. Here it intensified into Cyclone Idai, which made landfall in Mozambique on 14 March, continuing to Malawi where it caused significant infrastructure damage in the country's south. Through coordination, information sharing and facilitating access to common logistics services, the Logistics Sector, co-led by WFP and the Ministry of Transport and Public Works, assisted the humanitarian community in their efforts to deliver lifesaving items to affected areas.
