Horn of Africa: most probable hazard type

This map illustrates the most probable type of natural disaster in each cell, with the purpose of aiding in the allocation of mitigation resources.

Each disaster type dominates in a particular physiographic environment. Locusts predominate along the Red Sea and Gulf of Aden, floods are limited to the main drainages, and droughts dominate all other regions.

The bar chart summarizes the map information. In summary, drought is the most probable natural disaster in every Horn country. Locust infestation is the second most probable disaster in Djibouti and Eritrea, while floods are second most probable in Ethiopia, Kenya, and Somalia.
