Kenya Flash Appeal 2017

Kenya Flash Appeal: $165.71 million Required to reach 2.6 million people with life-saving assistance and protection in the next 10 months

SITUATION OVERVIEW

The 2016 short rains season (October to December) brought severely reduced levels of rainfall to the region. The drought has had a major impact on water resources. Widespread crop failures and declining terms of trade for pastoralists have affected farming and agro-pastoral communities especially in the Northwest, north-eastern and the coastal strip of Kenya.
Household production of milk and meat is low and the price of milk and other dairy products has skyrocketed, contributing to rising food insecurity and malnutrition.
