Natural Disasters Threaten Malawi’s Food Security

Malawi's reputation for improving food production could be in peril, explains Masina

Malawi's reputation for improving food production could be in peril, according to Lameck Masina’s analysis published on the All Africa website

Masina states that after years developing its capacity to feed itself, Malawi has recently suffered a series of devastating natural setbacks with thousands currently facing food shortages.

He says besides last year's erratic rains and drought which reduced the maize harvest (the country's staple) by seven percent, the Southern African country has recently been hit by severe floods, displacing an estimated 10 000 households across ten districts.
