  • Food security and nutrition in the Horn of Africa remains fragile with high vulnerability persisting in arid and semi-arid lands. Frequent natural and man-made disasters continue to erode the income earning assets of poor families.

  • The number of South Sudanese refugees crossing into Ethiopia, Kenya and Uganda is still rising. The region is also home to close to 1 million refugees from Somalia, while the internal displacement of 1.5 million people remains a constant challenge.

  • The EU has provided over €1 billion in humanitarian aid since 2011, making it one of the largest donors to the region.
