KwaZulu-Natal Premier Sihle Zikalala says the province has decided to declare a state of disaster.
The move follows the recent unrest and looting causing billions of rand in damage to businesses and malls as well as public infrastructure.
Delegates from the United Nations have met with Zikalala today to assess the impact caused by the riots.
More than 300 people died during the violence in KZN and Gauteng.
KZN is currently experiencing a threat to food security.
