Zambia: Drought MDRZW022

Main image
Zambia is currently experiencing a serious humanitarian crisis from frequent droughts, floods and heat waves driven by climate change. These disaster risks are affecting the country’s poorest communities, especially in rural areas, which rely on rainfall for agriculture. These dry spells, compounded by the El Niño effect, are driving overall increasing severity of food insecurity. The IFRC and its membership seek CHF 11 million (CHF 8 million of which is expected to be raised by the IFRC Secretariat) to reach 476,448 people with activities that aim to reduce the negative impacts of drought and contribute to improvement of food security, improve hygiene and health behaviours and improve nutrition status of children under the age of five.
