Responding to Humanitarian Needs and Strengthening Resilience

Over the last ten years food availability has improved in Malawi, but much of the population are unable to meet their food requirements fully or access a suitably diverse diet. Micronutrient deficiency figures are alarming, and stunting prevalence of 47 percent is the worst in southern Africa. Protracted relief and recovery operation 200692 follows unexpected developments that have led to increased political and financial volatility and vulnerability to food insecurity, requiring large-scale emergency food assistance since 2012.
