The Western Cape government says it needs a further R40 million to assist farmers and municipalities during the ongoing drought.

The province expects the dry season to persist as dam levels are dangerously low, despite heavy rain this week.

Meetings are happening behind closed doors to come up with an action plan to lessen the impact.

Economic Opportunities MEC Alan Winde says the initial application required about R80 million for drought relief.

He says the province is trying to raise more funds.
