Somalia is experiencing a prolonged and complex crisis characterised by conflict, displacement, drought and disease.
In Ethiopia, climate change and conflict continue to increase the humanitarian needs of the most vulnerable communities.
Ethiopia has experienced escalating conflict causing displacement in several regions. The country is highly vulnerable to extreme weather patters, with communities experiencing flash floods and droughts. These conditions have created the ideal conditions for desert locust infestations, which are destroying crops and homes and gravely affecting communities and their livelihoods.
Food and nutrition insecurity has increased in Ethiopia leaving almost 20 million people in need of humanitarian assistance.
The Covid-19 pandemic further threatens the economic situation for communities and has exacerbated pre-existing inequalities, affecting livelihoods, education, and general wellbeing.
