report Logistics Cluster

Background

Severe drought in east Africa in 2011 impacted populations in Ethiopia, Djibouti, Kenya, Somalia, and Uganda, leading to lack of access to sufficient food, water, and shelter, with parts of Somalia moving into famine. In addition to failed rains, access constraints that are a direct result of the complicated security situation have impacted the efforts to reach affected populations and have limited the ability of the humanitarian community to quickly and effectively scale-up operations in response to the crisis.
