Drought in Baringo County.docx


An estimate of 3.1 million people were classified in IPC Phase 3 (Crisis) or above acute food insecurity in February 2022. The deterioration of food insecurity is attributed to multiple shocks, including dry spells from three consecutive poor seasonal rainfall performances (all below the five-year average). In the target area of this proposal – Baringo County – the County Coordinator of National Drought Management Authority (NDMA), Mr. Bethuel Wafula, has stated that the situation deteriorating day by day since water points have dried up completely. He points out “if no urgent measures are taking to provide food assistance, many will starve to death.” The proposed intervention is aiming to mitigate the effects of the drought and food insecurity: • Provide immediate relief emergency in order to save lives (food security) • Supporting the people and the pastoral livestock by providing clean drinking water (water security)
