Lesson Learned? An Urgent Call for Action in The Horn Of Africa


Drought in Somaliland

Somalilandsun- The Horn of Africa is experiencing a devastating drought, which has left more than 15 million people in Ethiopia, Kenya and Somalia facing food and water shortages and in need of urgent humanitarian assistance.

The October-December rains have been well below average so far, and since the declared arrival of La Niña, concerns about the next rains – due in March-May 2017 – are now growing

The region is in crisis. We cannot wait for those rains to fail – we must collectively act now to prevent this crisis becoming a catastrophe, and implement the lessons learned from the 2010-11 drought, in which 258,000 people lost their lives
