In the south of Madagascar, known as the Grand Sud, hundreds of thousands of people are suffering from one of the worst droughts in the region in 40 years, the most senior UN official in the country has said, warning that the population is facing a severe humanitarian crisis.
The drought has gone on for longer than expected, and the funds received are insufficient to cover current and future needs.
We must act now: annual crops are a problem that will probably become a new crisis in the next agricultural season.
Resilience is the solution, and there is an urgent need to implement long-term solutions led by the government.
However, right now people need support and humanitarian assistance to get them on their feet and making a living.
The hunger season is coming.
We are in danger of seeing people who have endured the prolonged drought enter the lean season without the means to eat, without money to pay for health services, or to send their children to school, to get clean water, and even to get seeds to plant for the next agricultural season.
If we don’t act soon, we will face a much more severe humanitarian crisis”, according UN News.
