Center for Strategic & International Studies: Improving Relief and Development Responses to Climate Variability: Emerging Lessons from the 2015-2016 El Niño in Southern Africa
Richard Downie, deputy director and fellow in the CSIS Africa Program, writes, “The 2015-2016 El Niño weather system was one of the strongest on record, causing drought and flooding in locations across the world. … In June 2016, a team from the CSIS Global Food Security Project and CSIS Africa Program visited two of the hardest-hit countries — Malawi and Mozambique — to assess the scale of the disaster, observe the relief effort, and consider efforts by the United States to boost agricultural growth and build the resilience of affected countries” (10/6).
