U.S $524, Germany $226 and U.K $119 pledges for humanitarian aid to Horn of Africa's worst drought in 40 years.


The pledges were announced at a U.N on 24th May 2023 to support Somalia, Ethiopia and Kenya. Extreme effects of climate change and the worst drought in the region in 40 years has left many hungry and many more dead, massive loss of livestock and wildlife.
The U.N. has appealed for $7 billion and has received just $1.6 billion — far from enough to help the 43.3 million people in need of assistance in the three Horn of Africa countries.

    The reduction in drought associated with GHG mitigation provides economic benefits to the crop-based agriculture sector.

        We should endeavour find solutions ourselves without relying with other without countries for aid which in return they are the result of what's facing is today

          Great for the humanitarian support,although sometimes I tend to think that coming up with long lasting solutions to prevent or minimise the chances of the crisis reoccurring is key.

            @rosebellendiritu: The solution lies in solving the climate change crisis, meanwhile such funds to help the people cope will surely be required.
