Floods in East Africa exacerbate food insecurity

In Uganda, floods swept away a bridge of a highway that connects to western Uganda, one of the country’s main food baskets. The road also connects several borders with neighbouring countries such as Rwanda, Tanzania and DRC. Flooding incidents were also recorded in Kenya, Tanzania, Somalia, Ethiopia, and Sudan.

    Most of the money that could have been used to handle this situation to save lives is in people's pockets and the government is doing nothing about it. It is a shame

                The report on floods in East Africa highlights the immediate and widespread impact of climate change on the region. The destruction of a key highway bridge in Uganda, connecting to the country's main food-producing region, exacerbates food insecurity. Additionally, the interconnectedness of the affected road with neighboring countries underscores the regional implications of climate-related events.
