Moins de quatre ans avant 2015, date limite fixée par les chefs d’État du monde en l’an 2000 pour réaliser les Objectifs du millénaire pour le développement, c’est‐à‐dire éradiquer l’extrême pauvreté de la planète et réduire la faim de moitié, une nouvelle crise alimentaire dans la Corne de l’Afrique met en péril la vie de 12 millions de personnes.
Less than four years from the 2015 Millennium Development Goals deadline - the date that world leaders gave themselves in 2000 to eradicate extreme poverty from the planet and reduce hunger by half - a new food crisis in the Horn of Africa is threatening the lives of 12 million people.
The current food crisis in the Horn of Africa is one that has been slowly building over the last few years. Several factors have made it increasingly difficult for the people of the region to have access to sufficient food. After nearly three consecutive years of poor rains and drought conditions, people have been suffering from chronic hunger, as they try to cope. The fragility of life has been rendered all the more precarious by rising food costs and conflict, particularly as livelihoods are destroyed by ruined crops and dying cattle.
