There are approximately 20 million pastoralists across Sub-Saharan Africa. Pastoralists - people who depend primarily on livestock or livestock products for income and food- typically graze their animals on communally managed or open-access pastures, and move with them seasonally. Adding in agro-pastoralists-who derive 50 per cent of their income from non-livestock resources-the numbers reaches over 30 million in the Greater Horn of Africa (CAADP Policy Brief No.6, March 2012).

(Dadaab, Kenya, July 12, 2011) - Female refugees fleeing conflict and hunger in East Africa are facing another threat: rape and sexual violence. According to UNHCR reports, the numbers of sexual and gender-based violence cases have quadrupled: 358 incidents reported from January until June 2011, in comparison with 75 during the same period in 2010. At CARE’s reception centre in two of the refugee camps numbers have more than doubled. In the first six months of this year, since the refugee influx began, 136 cases have been documented, compared to 66 in the same period in 2010.

Nairobi, Kenya (March 2, 2006) - A mass movement of people across political boundaries is a potential scenario unless the emergency response to the drought is consistent and coordinated across the horn of Africa, leading humanitarian agency CARE International warned today.
The number of people directly affected by the drought in the Horn of Africa has now exceeded 5.4 million and continues to rise. CARE is scaling up its humanitarian response through the provision of water and food and longer-term responses, such as identifying economic alternatives for cattle herders, improving irrigation systems and diversifying crop production.
Nairobi, Kenya (January 27, 2006) - As the number of people directly affected by the current drought in the Horn of Africa keeps on rising-reaching approximately 6 million people in four countries-CARE is scaling up its response and planning ahead in case of additional rain failure over the coming months. Water, food and other life-saving interventions are in the forefront, paving the way to more sustainable efforts like feeding centers, economic alternatives for cattle herders, improved irrigation schemes and diversified crop production.
