Overview :

In 2015/16, Southern Africa experienced a severe drought induced by the El Niño weather condition. The El Niño phenomenon that persisted during the 2015/16 planting season caused the worst drought in 35 years in southern Africa. This resulted in a wide spread humanitarian emergency with an estimated 40 million people in need of humanitarian assistance according to vulnerability assessments and analysis. The drought severely affected food security and nutrition and livelihoods of the majority of the population in the region especially in seven most affected countries (Angola, Democratic Republic of Congo, Lesotho, Madagascar, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, South Africa, Swaziland, Zambia and Zimbabwe). This was the second, and in some cases third, consecutive year of drought in many areas. The severe drought conditions led to a widespread crop failure, poor harvests and loss of livelihoods. For detailed information, please refer to Annex I- Terms of Reference (ToR);
