Emergency Response Fund Kenya: Annual Report 2011
2011 was the year of a severe food security crisis in countries reported in the Horn of Africa region including Kenya. A combination of drought-induced crop failure, poor livestock conditions, rising food and non-food prices and eroded coping capacities are some of the key factors that contributed to the food crisis, which resulted in 3.74million people in Kenya food- insecure. Kenya was already experiencing ongoing humanitarian crisis that pre-dated the food crisis of 2011. In this regards, those areas that already had faced the worst effects of past drought conditions and also faced entrenched poverty, limited investment, and intermittent conflict further experienced a compounded food security situation.
