Angola’s drought, which has been compounded by the impact of El Niño and four seasons of lower than average rainfall has affected 1.4 million people, including 756,000 children. The ongoing decline in the price of oil has resulted in an economic crisis increasing the rate of inflation and giving rise to higher food prices. In the most affected provinces of Cunene, Namibe and Huila, over 800,000 people are food insecure, while an estimated 95,538 children under-five are in need of treatment for severe acute malnutrition (SAM) in the country. Water reserves have been depleted with 80 per cent of boreholes in Cunene not functioning. People and livestock are sharing the same water sources heightening the risk of communicable disease. The drought is exacerbating migratory movement of whole communities, including cross border movements which have increased child protection concerns. Health risks have also spiked including an outbreak of Yellow Fever which has led to the death of 238 people between January and April 2016, with concerns that the entire population is at risk.
