The 2023 Somalia HRP, released in January, seeks an estimated $2.6 billion to reach 7.6 million of the nearly 8.3 million people in need in the country, as ongoing drought conditions continue to intensify and exacerbate humanitarian needs.

U.S. Ambassador to the UN Linda Thomas-Greenfield traveled to the region and announced approximately $41 million in new USAID/BHA funding to provide lifesaving assistance in Somalia.

Drought conditions have diminished pastoral livelihood opportunities in Kenya’s ASALs and heightened humanitarian need in Kenya and in eastern and southern Ethiopia in recent months.
