KENYA, SOMALIA, ETHIOPIA, SOUTH SUDAN, UGANDA REGIONAL WASH GROUP FEBRUARY 2017
The evolving negative impact of IOD has resulted into below-average rainfall and drought situation in Ethiopia. There is significant gaps in drinking water supply to households in the six most affected regions. Water scarcity in lowland areas of Oromia, part of SNNP, Somali and Afar region is critical. Approximately 3.9 million people needs immediate water supply in 195 woredas of the 4 regions.
Currently more than 2.6 million people have been reached through water trucking since January 2017. A maximum of 437 trucks were deployed during the peak period in the third week of April while the need was standing at 762 trucks. As a result of recently improved rains in most of the drought affected areas, the demand for water tucking support has temporarily diminished by at least 40%. However, about 2.7 million people living in 195 woredas mainly in Oromia and Somali regions will need emergency water supply, using water trucking, for a maximum of twenty weeks until the end of 2017.

ADDRESSING DROUGHT IMPACTS IN LINE WITH HRD 2017
The 2016 El Nino drought affected 10 million people.
Currently more than 7700 m3 of water per day are supplied by 370 water trucks in 117 woredas. A total of 193 woredas are in need of 667 water trucks (15,000 m3 water per day). There is thus a gap of 297 water trucks. Current water trucking plans are until March 2017. Approximately US$25.2 million are required to truck water until June 2017.
