  • Mandera County in the far northeast of Kenya and the neighboring Gedo region in Somalia is facing an alarming drought, with depleted watering holes (shallow wells, boreholes and water pans), reduced crop production and parched pasture.
  • Combined with a deterioration in the security situation, the socio-economic effects of COVID-19, desert locusts and the outbreak of animal diseases, more than 320,000 people are at high risk of deterioration in what is already a very fragile food security. Meanwhile, other counties in northern Kenya are also on the brink of drought.
  • Local authorities on both sides of the border have asked central governments, NGOs and humanitarian donors for support, particularly in the areas of WASH, food security, animal feed supplements, nutrition and protection.
  • Humanitarian actors, including some partners from DG ECHO, are trying to mobilize funds to carry out an emergency intervention in both Mandera (Kenya) and Gedo (Somalia).
