Above average harvest lowers food insecurity in Mozambique

4 August 2014

The food security of most Mozambican rural families is now assured, with acute food insecurity at a minimum due to an above average harvest, reports FEWS Net, an organisation financed by the United States of America.

In its most recent food security report update, FEWS Net (Famine Early Warning Systems Network) indicates that family households are able to meet their basic food needs due to the continual availability of food in markets and access to food they themselves produce.

Cited by the AIM news agency, the FEWS Net report stresses that most markets have sufficient supplies of basic consumer products. It also states that food prices should follow a normal seasonal trend.

The document indicates that families in areas affected by moderate flooding in February and March of this year have already recovered and now have sufficient access to food, which they produce. (macauhub/MZ)
