UN declares famine in Somalia (Guardian)
@1 year ago with 1 note
“The UN has officially declared two parts of Somalia to be in famine amid the worst drought in east Africa for 60 years.
‘Current humanitarian response is inadequate to meet emergency needs,’ [a UN report] said. ‘Assuming current levels of response, evidence suggests that famine across all regions of the south will occur in the coming one to two months. A massive multisectoral response is critical to prevent additional deaths and total livelihood/social collapse and, most immediately, interventions to improve food access and to address health/nutrition issues are needed.’”
