The latest IPC acute food insecurity situation analysis covered 36 districts of 7 Provinces. According to the results, 531,476 people in 19 districts were classified to be in "Crisis"(IPC phase 3) and in need of urgent interventions to protect their livelihoods, reduce food shortages and increase their resilience to extreme events.

The districts of concern were Chibuto, Chicualacuala, Chigubo, Guija, Mandlakaze and Mapai in Gaza province, Funhalouro, Mabote and Panda districts in Inhambane Province, Cahora Bassa, Changara, Chifunde, Chiuta, Doa, Magoe, Marara, Moatize and Mutarara in the Province of Tete and Chemba in Sofala Province. Major drivers of acute food insecurity were poor agricultural productivity due to irregular and late onset of rainfall, lack of improved seeds resistant to climate change, inadequate food consumption, insufficient food stocks, pest and disease incidence in crops, low access to improved water and sanitation services.
