Mozambique grapples food security over droughts

In parts of central Mozambique, devastating droughts have decimated crops, leaving residents to rely on wild fruits and tubers for sustenance.

The severe food shortages have led to dozens of families being displaced from their homes in Sofala province, seeking refuge in neighboring areas of Manica province, according to local authorities.

Mozambique, with its geographical position and coastal vulnerability, is highly susceptible to the destructive impacts of the El Niño weather phenomenon, which have been exacerbated by the ongoing climate crisis.

Candido Zeca, a district official overseeing economic affairs in the hard-hit area of Chemba, acknowledges that insufficient assistance has been provided to those in need.

However, he assures that food aid and agricultural resources are en route to alleviate the situation.
