The Government of Djibouti ratified the Convention on the Rights of the Child (1990), its two optional protocols (2011) as well as the African Charter on the Rights and Welfare of the Child (2009) - all without reservations. The country has thus committed to protect children’s rights and to work towards providing all children with the opportunities to fulfil their rights. Since then, Djibouti has made tremendous progress in advancing children’s and women’s rights.

Rains intensify across the region in late April, early May
Late season rains intensified across the region during the past several weeks, reducing rainfall deficits across some drought-affected areas of the Eastern Horn. While these rains are likely to contribute to improvements in cropping prospects and pasture and water availability in some areas, flooding has already resulted in damage in localized areas of Kenya, and may affect parts of Ethiopia and southern Somalia in the coming weeks.
