Current Situation

In 2015 Africa experienced its worst drought in 60 years. The unusually strong El Niño weather pattern in 2015-2016, coupled with record-high temperatures, had a catastrophic effect on crops, vegetation, livestock, and water resources. Unfortunately, the drought has continued into 2017 due to lack of significant rainfall.

In addition to the drought, armed conflict, and economic decline has further exacerbated the problem for some countries.

18 Feb 2017 description

Increased, unseasonal rainfall forecast in some drought-affected areas

KEY MESSAGES

Vegetations have continued to deteriorate into February, particularly in the Horn, as the dry season has continued.

Drought conditions exacerbated by above-average surface temperatures over Eastern Horn January 2017

Key Messages

  • As this is the dry season for most areas in the region, the hotter-than-normal land surface temperatures across the Eastern Horn, which are forecast to continue, are exacerbating drought conditions in many areas of Somalia, eastern Kenya, and southern Ethiopia. As a result, a rapid depletion in water and pasture resources is likely to continue in pastoral areas.

Drought conditions persist, despite late seasonal rains over parts of eastern Horn of Africa

KEY MESSAGES

  • Rainfall increased during late November and early December in parts of northeastern Kenya, southern Ethiopia, and southern Somalia, which is likely to lead to short-term improvements in pasture and water. However, rainfall remains less than 30 percent of average parts of southern and central Somalia and southeastern Ethiopia. Agricultural production prospects are very poor and pasture levels remain very low.

SUMMARY POINTS*

  • Maize grain remained the most traded commodity in Eastern Africa in the second quarter of 2016 since it is consumed by a large percentage of the population. However, the quality of maize available in the region is of poor quality resulting in significant rejection rates by millers.

  • Locally produced rice mostly from Tanzania was the second major crop traded in the region but is still grappling with issues of origin since some of it is mixed with Asian attracting the full East Africa common external tariff.
