I. Funding Overview

The intensifying drought situation facing countries in the Horn of Africa, including Kenya, prompted humanitarian partners to undertake an urgent revision of the respective country humanitarian requirements to respond to the crisis. The ‘Humanitarian Requirements for the Horn of Africa Drought’ document presents the latest humanitarian response plans and funding requirements for Djibouti, Ethiopia, Kenya and Somalia. It draws from the strategic humanitarian plans that each country had in place for 2011, which have now been revised and intensified with the worsening of the drought and the outbreak of famine in parts of Somalia. It reflects the major emergency revision of the Somalia Consolidated Appeal plus significant new funding requirements for Kenya. Donors are encouraged to consider the document as a resumé of the current situation, and to consult the relevant consolidated appeals or comparable documents for more detailed information on the situation in each country when considering their funding decisions.
