United Nations Humanitarian Chief Mark Lowcock is set to visit the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) says.
Lowcock, who will be in Zimbabwe from Feb. 27 to March 1, will then visit neighboring Malawi by March 2, to also assess the humanitarian situation in the southern African country.
"In Zimbabwe, Lowcock is in the process of becoming more and more secure," said OCHA said.
Zimbabwe is facing an economic crisis.
According to aid agencies, at least 2.4 million people are predicted to need food assistance in Zimbabwe.
Many parts of the country have been written off by poor farmers and erratic weather patterns.
This would be Lowcock's first visit to southern Africa as UN Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator.
