Cost of inaction

Humanitarian crisis in southern Madagascar


Southern Madagascar, the poorest region in one of the world’s poorest countries, is suffering its worst drought in years. This combined with the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic has destroyed livelihoods and created a major food and nutrition emergency that has left over 1.1 million people food insecure. 500,000 children under 5 years old are projected to be malnourished by April 2022. This is a crisis that will continue to worsen unless the humanitarian response is scaled up urgently.
