Drought impact persist in Somalia and the Horn of Africa region!
Communities in the Horn of Africa are facing the threat of starvation following four consecutive failed rainy seasons in many parts of Somalia, Ethiopia, Kenya and , a climatic event not seen in at least 40 years.
The October-December 2020, March-May 2021, October-December 2021 and March-May 2022 seasons were all marred by below-average rainfall, leaving large swathes of Somalia, southern and south-eastern Ethiopia, and northern and eastern Kenya facing the most prolonged drought in recent history.
The March-May 2022 rainy season was the driest on record in the last 70 years—making the 2020-2022 surpass the horrific droughts in both 2010-2011 and 2016-2017 in duration and severity—and early forecasts indicate that the October-December 2022 rainy season is also likely to fail.
