- THE CRISIS:
Kenya is facing a drought emergency confirmed by early warning information sources. Food and water scarcity has reached levels of concern and this scarcity is predicted to intensify into early 2017. Immediate causes of drought in Kenya include a late onset of 2016 short rains, which were also brief and weak.
1. Brief description of the emergency and impact
The Horn of Africa is once again hit by drought. It is not the first time but this time it is critical. The current drought is projected to become the worst in decades, even worse than the one that led to the 2011 East Africa famine. The good news, providing hope, is that the situation could be mitigated. However, the tragic reality is that little has been done. There is a need for a long-term solution for the region, which is continuously hit by climate change related events.
