SADC states facing food crisis

Poor rains, on top of wide-spread, chronic vulnerability, have several SADC states heading towards food crisis
THE Southern African Development Community (SADC) member states have been warned of an impending food shortage as a result of poor rains this season.
"This will therefore result in an increase in the number of people requiring humanitarian assistance in terms of food and non-food intervention," said Dr Salomao. Reading the Final Communique of the 32nd Summit of the SADC Heads of States and Government, he urged member states to undertake appropriate measures to ensure sustainable food security in line with the Dar es Salaam Declaration on Agriculture and Food Security.
