Millions of vulnerable households globally could face increased hunger and poverty due to droughts and floods as a result of a climatic occurrence: El Niño. This phenomenon is not an individual weather event but a climate pattern which occurs every two to seven years and lasts 9 to 12 months. Typically, this climatic condition develops during April-June and reaches maximum strength during December-February; this event could be the most powerful on record (Earth Institute 2015).

The pre-elections contingency plan launched in April 2015 called for US$ 58 million for both preparedness and response for up to six months. Agencies have been using their internal funding mechanisms or diverting funding from their regular programmes to respond to the new situation. The revised post-elections plan (from September 2015 to February 2016) requires a total of $39.3 million to prepare and respond to the needs of up to 400,000 people. Agencies reported that they had received about $7.1 million by November 11, 2015.
