DROUGHT IN AFRICA 

Up to 20 million people in Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia and Eritrea are facing extreme hardship and food shortages as a result of an exceptionally long and severe drought, along with insecurity, economic challenges and conflict. 

Delayed rains are worsening an already brutal drought in what is known as the Horn of Africa - a large peninsula in East Africa. This could possibly mark the longest drought the region has experienced in four decades, and millions of Africans will bear the severe consequences.

The current drought hitting East Africa has been particularly unrelenting towards small-scale farmers and herders who were already vulnerable to climate-related blows. 

In Somalia, six million Somalis - almost half of the population - were already facing extreme levels of food crisis and if conditions do not improve, they could face the risk of famine in the coming months.  

While hope rests on seasonal rains in the region over the coming weeks, the forecast is not promising.

In Ethiopia, Kenya and Somalia alone, nearly 14 million peopleabout half of them children are severely food insecure and trying to survive scorching temperatures and climate-impacted crises that are becoming more frequent and intense.

 


how THE Humanitarian situation cAN BE SOLVED

These African countries urgently need water and food assistance in the coming weeks and months. With livestock being affected by the drought, the people crucially need food until production resumes. Efforts are also on the way to provide drought-resistant seeds that can help farmers reap a harvest.
