Kenya Drought Response Plan, January - December 2023 (Issued January 2023)

Kenya has experienced five consecutive below-average rainy seasons, causing the longest and most severe drought in recent history and driving rapidly rising humanitarian needs across the Arid and Semi-Arid Lands (ASAL) region. An estimated 6.4 million people will require humanitarian assistance in 2023, including about 602,000 refugees, representing a 35 per cent increase compared to 2022. This is the highest number of people in need recorded in Kenya in at least the last 10 years. According to the Integrated Phase Classification (IPC) analysis, the impact of the drought on food and income is driving crisis (IPC 3) outcomes across the pastoral areas and driving emergency (IPC Phase 4) outcomes across the ASAL region. There is a 10 per cent year-end rise in people currently facing acute food insecurity (IPC Phase 3 or 4) in 23 ASAL counties, totalling 3.5 million people.
