Audit of USAID/Zambia’s Food Security Activities.

Country: Zambia
Fiscal Year: 2010
Agency: USAID
Audit Report Available: Yes
Description:

Zambia experiences cyclical periods of food insecurity, including chronic underproduction of staple crops. In 2007, the same regions that experienced drought in 2005 suffered devastating floods, which left thousands of households without shelter or food. The U.S. humanitarian assistance program targets relief to-development activities that seek to break the cycle of climatic or economic shock that is followed by food insecurity. U.S. assistance supports programs that help subsistence farmers graduate to sustainable practices linked to agriculture reform, including increased agricultural production and improved marketing. USAID funding is $10 million for FY 2009.

This audit will determine whether USAID/Zambia is contributing to increased food security.
