Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia: Combating Drought and Famine in Horn of Africa

Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia: Combating Drought and Famine in Horn of Africa

“Technical support helps improve knowledge base and management capacity of groundwater to mitigate drought and improve access to water during emergencies and for longer term needs”.

Following 2010-11 drought crisis, UNESCO conducted a high resolution groundwater survey in Turkana region of Kenya (36 000 km2) leading to identification of 5 major deep aquifers with critical potential for relief and economic development.

Installation and operationalization of a regional drought monitoring system had also contributed to the prevention capacities in the region.
