Famine in the Horn of Africa

The situation in Somalia is deteriorating; the UN warns that almost all regions of the south could face famine. It has been reported from the famine affected regions that  rates of malnutrition and mortality are increasing, and communicable diseases continue to spread.

According to the latest report by the Food Security and Nutrition Analysis Unit (FSNAU), 4 million people are currently in crisis nationwide, up from 3.7 million reported in August. Out of these 4 million, 3 million are in the south of Somalia. FSNAU has warned that 750,000 people risk death in the coming four months if efforts to respond to the famine are not scaled up.
