Horn of Africa Situation Report No. 19, January 2013
AT A GLANCE
Conditions across the Horn of Africa have improved, however a crisis food security situation continues in areas of South Sudan, Ethiopia, Somalia and Kenya. 12.1 million people remain food insecure. The following number of people are affected per country:
Ethiopia 3.8 million
Kenya 2.5 million
Somalia 2.1 million
South Sudan 3 million
Poorer households throughout the Horn are still recovering from the previous season’s poor crop production and loss of livestock. Many families remain in a precarious food security situation.
A new food security alert has been issued for southeast Kenya due to poor and uneven rain distribution during the October to December rainy season. Affected households are in a “crisis” food security situation.
