Four Famines: Fragility, Resilience, and the Role of International Development
Description: More than 20 million people in Yemen, Somalia, South Sudan, and Nigeria are facing famine conditions and possible starvation. It has been called the largest humanitarian crisis the world has seen in decades. Of the $4.9 billion the United Nations desperately needs to respond to these crises, only $2.5 billion has been received. Meanwhile, the humanitarian disaster is deepening, largely due to escalating conflict in each of the four countries. Humanitarian assistance and international development have different objectives and time horizons, but must work together to respond to the crisis at hand while also preventing the next one from occurring. What role does international development play in building long-term resilience? What are the linkages between conflict, fragility, and severe food insecurity? How can U.S. leadership and international development programming break the cycle of instability and famine?

Mobile teams deliver health for Somalis “far, far away”
Description: For Somalis living in rural areas of the country, access to health care services is hit or miss. Years of conflict and the centuries-long nomadic lifestyle have left many cut off from health services. Yet these same people bear the brunt of the difficult drought conditions being experienced across the country. Fortunately today, even in the most isolated and remote villages some are able to access vital services with the help of the Somali Red Crescent Society (SRCS) mobile health teams.
