  1. Background Information

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

The drought affecting the Horn of Africa and the cumulative effect of successive years of poor rains, coupled in some cases with conflict and civil unrest, is threatening the livelihoods of 15 million people, mostly pastoralists who depend on livestock and agriculture for their way of life.

In Southern Africa, food insecurity is worsening for an estimated 12 million people due to reduced harvests in 2005, escalating food prices and rising energy costs.
