Donors, Governments Should Collectively Respond To Food Security Threats Posed By El Niño In Madagascar, Southern Africa

U.S. Department of State’s “DipNote”: El Niño Brings Drought and Hunger to Madagascar
David Lane, U.S. ambassador to the U.N. agencies in Rome, discusses a recent trip to Madagascar to see the effects of ongoing drought and the El Niño weather pattern on the country’s food security. He writes, “We need to take collective action for a greater response with other donors, and with the government — not only in Madagascar but across the region of Southern Africa — to address the acute needs generated by the drought and help save millions of lives” (6/17).
