Zimbabwe: Humanitarian Dashboard (as of 30 November 2016)

 Situation Overview

Most parts of the country received rains in November, though the bulk remain in the below normal category. In parts of Mashonaland and Manicaland provinces, the rains were significant enough and farmers have started planting. 4.1 million Zimbabweans face the impact of the El Nino-induced drought in rural areas, with increased vulnerability in urban and peri-urban areas leaving additional 1.1 million food insecure. The food security situation is expected to worsen during the peak lean season period (Jan-Mar 2017) and the worst affected areas will experience Emergency (IPC Phase 4) outcomes. In support of the Government's drought response efforts, the UN and NGOs, with generous support of the development partners such as the USA, UK, China, EU, Netherlands, Japan amongst others, have to date reached over 2.1 million people.
