Horn of Africa: impact of early warning early action

Source(s):  Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations - Headquarters (FAO)

Protecting pastoralist livelihoods ahead of drought

This study analyses the outcomes of early actions implemented in Kenya, Somalia and Ethiopia in 2017, evaluating how effective they were in mitigating the impact of severe drought on vulnerable pastoralist livelihoods and quantifying the benefits generated through acting early. 

Early actions are varied and flexible, ranging from cash transfers for fishing communities to safely store their nets ahead of an impending cyclone, to livestock treatments for herders as a drought intensifies, or flood defences for farmers before a severe rainy season.
