Kenya, Somalia, Ethiopia: Acting early to prevent humanitarian emergencies

26 Jul 2018, FAO

According to a new report, for every $1 FAO spent on early livestock interventions in Kenya, Somalia and Ethiopia in 2017, as herders braced for another harsh drought, each family saw benefits worth up to $9 due to fewer animals dying of hunger and disease, and producing up to three times more milk. Given this economic benefit, early intervention is on the rise.
