Planning for Drought in Mozambique: Balancing the Roles of Food Aid and Food Markets

This paper first traces the progress the country has made in food security during the past five years, focusing on the role that markets have played in improving food access for households. It then highlights the enormous challenges the country continues to face in this regard before turning to the issue of planning for drought in 1998 and succeeding years. It draws heavily from the 1992 experience in Mozambique, and emphasizes the need to rethink emergency and commercial food aid response to protect the progress already achieved in the private food marketing system and encourage its further development.
