Summary

Madagascar is currently experiencing extreme food shortages and rising prices caused by the economic impact of COVID-19, pest outbreaks, and the worst drought recorded since 1981. The Deep South is particularly vulnerable to food insecurity, with 1.5 million people in the region, approximately half of the population, unable to find enough food to eat. The number of people living at imminent risk of famine is expected to double over the lean season, the period between planting and harvesting.

Challenge

Madagascar is currently experiencing extreme food shortages and rising prices caused by the economic impact of COVID-19, pest outbreaks, and the worst drought recorded since 1981. The Deep South is particularly vulnerable to food insecurity, with 1.5 million people in the region, approximately half of the population, unable to find enough food to eat. The number of people living at imminent risk of famine is expected to double over the lean season, the period between planting and harvesting.

Solution

Since February 2021, SEED Madagascar has been responding to this crisis through the implementation of an Emergency Food Distribution Programme. SEED has completed Round I of food distribution in seven rural healthcare centres, spanning across 41 rural villages, supporting 653 malnourished children and their families. The malnutrition recovery rate from Round I of distribution is 98%. The expansion of the programme, across 45 additional villages, is expected to commence in December 2021.

Long-Term Impact

In desperate times, the immediate issue is, rightly, front of mind. However, once the food security emergency starts to ease, support for longer-term recovery and resilience will be critical in the coming months as communities move towards recovery. SEED's sustainable livelihoods programming enables people in food-insecure communities to increase their financial resilience.
