Description:

An assessment of the impact of the flood and other natural disasters on food security of rural households in areas of Northern Namibia.

Summary / Notes:

This assessment is a follow-up Emergency Food Security Assessment (EFSA) to evaluate the flooding that occurred in Northern Namibia at the end of the harvest season, based upon the recommendation of the March 2008 joint GRN/NRCS/UN mission to the same areas. The focus of this assessment is on the current and future evolution of the food security situation of flood-affected rural populations living in the regions of Caprivi, Kavango, Omusati, Ohangwena, Oshana, and Oshikoto.
