In January 2012, the area of Traditional Authority Mlolo in Nsanje District was hit by two floods after heavy rain led to the swelling of Ruo and Shire Rivers. The floods affected 10,376 people, out of which 6,159 were displaced. The most affected sectors were housing, water and sanitation, and agriculture.
This assessment provides the recovery, reconstruction, and DRR needs in the following sectors: transport, health, education, agriculture and livestock, water and sanitation, energy, and housing.
