Drought in Somalia

The Mogadishu-based Heritage Institute for Policy Studies (HIPS) published in April 2017 a report titled "Somalia's Drought Induced Crises: Immediate Action and Change of Strategy Needed."

The drought in Somalia now covers the entire country. If rain does not arrive by mid-April, and if massive humanitarian assistance does not arrive, the drought could become an insidious famine devastating the country. The report makes suggestions for a more effective Somali government response to the crisis.
