STORY HIGHLIGHTS

  • Recurrent drought, food insecurity, and subsequent risks of famine have created a devastating and increasingly unsustainable cycle of events in Somalia in recent decades.

  • About $6.8 billion has been spent on emergency response to save lives since 2011.

Executive Summary

In Somalia, famine remains a recurring risk. Decades of insecurity, political instability, drought and food insecurity have disrupted desperately needed services, devastated human capital and physical infrastructure, and contributed to systematic impoverishment and displacement of the population. This confluence of factors has created an exceedingly complex crisis in the Horn of Africa, and it demands an equally complex analysis of the underlying drivers of drought, their impact on the Somali people and the strategies that can pave the way toward recovery and resilience.
