The deepening economic crisis combined with the impact of climate shocks, including prolonged drought, continued to cause the deterioration of the humanitarian situation in Zimbabwe. Various macro-economic developments, including the devaluation of the local currency (RTGS), caused a year-on-year inflation rate of around 300 per cent in August, according to the International Monetary Fund (IMF). The price of basic commodities -such as food and fuel- have risen steeply, while the drought, increases in input prices and delayed availability of inputs are impacting farmers’ capacity to prepare for the upcoming maize planting season. Rolling power cuts of up to 18 hours per day are affecting the productive sector nationwide and further reducing employment opportunities.
