A special UN Rapouturer is expected to visit Zimbabwe on a fact-finding mission on the right to food, Daily News reports. Hilal Elver will be in Zimbabwe between 18 and 28 November.
Speaking about his impending visit Elver said:
The objective of my visit is to engage in constructive discussions to identify good practises as well as challenges to the enjoy- ment of the right to food in Zimbabwe, and provide useful recommendations to the gov- ernment and others.
I will consider the increased challenges posed by the economic crisis, as well as the role of the private sector, the impact of climate change, natural disasters and drought on food security and people’s livelihoods, and the issues related to nutrition and food quality in both urban and rural areas.
Zimbabwe experienced the worst drought ever in 2019 with an estimated 8 million people in need of food aid.
