SADC 2018/19 FOOD AND NUTRITION OUTLOOK REPORT

CARE International and FANRPAN welcome the 2018/19 Food and Nutrition Outlook Report released by Southern Africa Development Community (SADC) on 6 July 2018. The report comes at an opportune time to support governments, private sector and non-state actors to plan and address the food and nutrition gaps in the SADC region.
According to the report, 29.4 million people in the region are food and nutrition insecure, representing over 14% of the total regional population. In Madagascar, Malawi, Mozambique, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe, the number of people who are food and nutrition insecure has increased, despite an increase in food production. Compared to the previous year, Zambia, Botswana, Malawi and Zimbabwe recorded the largest increases in food and nutrition insecure populations.
