Un rastro de devastación

El Niño, el grave fenómeno meteorológico de 2015 y 2016, ha llegado a su fin, pero sus devastadoras consecuencias, especialmente sobre los niños, están lejos de terminar. En África oriental y meridional, las zonas más afectadas, hay 26,5 millones de niños que necesitan ayuda, incluyendo a más de 1 millón que precisan este año tratamiento contra la desnutrición grave aguda.
Estas cifras alarmantes podrían incluso aumentar aún más como resultado de las sequías y las enfermedades generadas por este poderoso fenómeno meteorológico.

The Situation

The main rainy season (kiremt rains) that is vital for producing over 80 per cent of Ethiopia’s agricultural yield – in an industry that employs 85 per cent of the country’s workforce – failed in 2015, and a powerful El Niño weather event continues to wreak havoc on children’s lives and their families’ livelihoods.

SUMMARY

The humanitarian impact of the 2015-2016 El Niño is deeply alarming, affecting over 60 million people globally. The El Niño phenomenon is now in a neutral phase, but food insecurity caused by drought is not likely to peak before December. East and Southern Africa are the most affected regions, and humanitarian impacts will last well into 2017.
