Présentation
This FAO project targets counties facing the highest vulnerability due to the drought, including Marsabit, Turkana, Garissa, and Tana River. These are among the counties identified by Kenya National Drought Management Authority during the December mid-season review to be at the alert stage and where the drought situation is worsening. FAO’s main objective is to safeguard livestock-based livelihoods and improve the food security and nutrition status of drought-affected households. FAO and its partners’ activities complement ongoing emergency actions in other parts of the country including the current ongoing Rapid Response CERF project. The project will implement activities including providing supplementary feed for key milking animals, undertaking slaughter de-stocking of small stock that is in fairly poor condition but are healthy for human consumption, vaccinations, treatments against internal parasites and other diseases, and repairing strategic water resources. The project targets 143,640 people, including 34,274 women, 72,920 men,86,380 children, and 21,546 persons with disabilities.
