Humanitarian situation and needs

Key messages

  • While the situation has improved in 2012 due to good rainfall and substantial aid, 1.1 million Kenyans are currently still in need of humanitarian assistance;

  • The situation in Dabaab refugee camp, the biggest in the world, has been stable, but there are still gaps in the provision of adequate food and security;

  • The overall situation remains fragile and requires constant vigilance also due to the upcoming elections in the country. The European Commission together with other donors actively contributes to helping the country prepare for elections to avoid outbreaks of violence within the country seen at the last elections.
