Southern Africa’s latest drought will “hugely increase” the amount of food-insecurity suffered by millions across the region.
That’s the view of Neil Marsland from the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations (FAO).
He said the drought was the worst in 35 years and a direct consequence of the El Nino weather phenomenon.
Sandra Ferrari asked Mr Marsland, a senior technical officer with the FAO’s Division for Emergency Operations and Rehabilitation, what would happen if help didn’t reach the region in time.
