In a guest blog, published today on the CDKN website, Dr Katharine Vincent and Ms Tracy Cull outline the extent of flooding from heavy rains in Mozambique, and ask why it is receiving so little media coverage. The physical magnitude of flooding has reached similar proportions to the year 2000, yet despite this, the international media is barely reporting the issue. Floods began in mid January in the south of the country (around the Limpopo basin), and have subsequently occurred in the central region (Zambezi basin) and to the north (Cabo Delgado and Niassa provinces), affecting 250,000 people to date. Mozambique's National Disaster Management Institute has responded, with the assistance of humanitarian partners.
