​SADC Needs Funding As Drought Hits Hard

The SADC region needs at least US$2.7 billion to mitigate the effects of El Nino induced drought

The Southern African Development Community (SADC) region needs at least US$2.7 billion to mitigate the effects of El Nino induced drought.

Since being hit by the worst drought in more than thirty years, SADC is more concerned about food security which may lead to millions suffering from starvation.

SADC launched an appeal for humanitarian assistance in Gaborone, Botswana, at a time when 40 million people representing 14 percent of the region's total population are food insecure.
