Revised RIASCO Action Plan for the El Niño-Induced Drought in Southern Africa, December 2016

The plan is in support of SADC's Regional Humanitarian Appeal. It was developed in three pillars: a humanitarian pillar setting out the immediate needs for initially 12.3 million people and now revised to 13.8 million people in 7 priority countries totaling $1.3 billion over 12 months; a resilience pillar to be undertaken in parallel to humanitarian efforts; and a macro-economic pillar which sets out policy options for governments to address the long term impacts and risk management of the regional drought crisis.
