Zimbabwe: Flood Snapshot (as of 01 March 2017)

Flood Update

Record rainfall, to which Tropical Cyclone Dineo recently contributed, has led to floods across Zimbabwe. Almost 2,000 people have been left homeless, with assessment continuing and some areas remaining inaccessible. Significant infrastructure damage has also been reported.

The Cabinet Committee on Emergency Preparedness and Disaster Management is leading the response with the support of national and international partners. However, significant gaps exist in all sectors, including Shelter and Non-Food Items; Health and Nutrition; Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH); and Education. The Government has officially appealed to all partners to support its emergency relief operations.
