Emergency Famine Alert

The Famine Early Warning System of the relief agency US Aid issued an emergency alert for Zimbabwe. In a Special Report regarding the Southern Africa Food Crisis they pointed out that “in Zimbabwe, general economic collapse, severe food and fuel shortages, hyperinflation, destruction of illegal settlements, and the effects of HIV/AIDS make the situation unlike any other food insecure country in Africa, with the highest potential to deteriorate into famine conditions.”
