The Zimbabwean government and NGOs have embarked on an assessment of the food security situation, after initial studies showed that most households will require assistance from around December this year.
Provincial administrator, Felix Chikovo, says that the assessment will give government and its development partners sufficient time to plan for the projected shortages.
Chikovo says the southern districts will need assistance by mid-December. "We have tasked NGOs to also carry out their own assessment of food requirements for the province so that we really get to know how many people will need food assistance.”
