Got the Date

Just googled myself and found the date of the Southern African Food Crisis I was talking about last week.    It was 2002.

Since then there have been several more food crises.   East Africa and Somalia are still in the grip of them as I write, as is Africa south of the Sahel.  In Somalia there had already been SIXTEEN warnings of a crisis waiting to happen.   The food security and early warning systems are just archaic.

More thoughts on that anon.
