Disasters Emergency Committee: East Africa response review

29 November 2017

This is a review of the Disasters Emergency Committee work across East Africa.

Persistent drought during 2016-17 in Ethiopia, Kenya, and Somalia, and the ongoing conflict in South Sudan saw a serious escalation in humanitarian needs across the East Africa region. To support its 13 member agencies to respond to this, the Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) launched an appeal, focusing on these countries. So far, the Appeal has raised £60 million, including £10 million UK Aid Match funding which the member agencies will spend over a period of up to two years.
