Numbers Affected

More than 16 million people are currently estimated at risk of food insecurity in the Greater Horn of Africa due to the prolonged drought and ongoing conflicts. The June 2000 UN appeal addresses the immediate needs of an estimated drought-affected population of 13.4 million in five of these countries. By country, the UN lists numbers of people affected at 10 million in Ethiopia, 2.2 million in Kenya, 750,000 in Somalia, 335,000 in Eritrea, and 150,000 in Djibouti.
