This mission was organized by A.I.D.'s Office for Foreign Disaster Assistance (OFDA) in response to the ongoing drought in Southern Africa. The mission consisted of two teams working in parallel, one team visiting coastal countries (Mozambique, Swaziland, Republic of South Africa, Lesotho, and Angola), and the other team visiting inland countries (Zimbabwe, Zambia, Botswana, and Malawi). The overall team purpose was to collect and evaluate information on food and non-food needs resulting from the drought. The water and sanitation objectives were: a. conduct a needs assessment of the water supply situation; conduct a survey of the following: water availability, water requirements, and water quality; b. recommend strategies for providing water through efficient, cost-effective methods to the affected populations; c. indentify governmental and nongovernmental organizations which may have the skills and resources to implement potable water programs; d. assess the sanitation implications of the water shortages caused by drought.
