An estimated 41 million people in the rural population of countries falling under the Southern African Development Community (SADC) are food insecure following the El Nino-induced drought.

The regional body points out that this meant 23 percent of the region’s 181 million rural population were affected, adding that at least 21 million are in urgent need of assistance.

According to the SADC’s recent Vulnerability Assessment Results on the El Nino weather phenomenon, nearly 2.7 million children were suffering from acute malnutrition.
