WFP urgently requires US$90 million for the next six months (July-December) to meet the needs of all its programmes in Kenya based on current assessed needs.
Funding is also required to ensure timely re-sponse in case of increasing emergency needs and to expand resilience-building activities.
Food and nutrition security in the arid and semi-arid lands is precarious after two poor rainfall seasons. Recent nutrition surveys indi-cate a deteriorating situation in Baringo, Man-dera, Marsabit, Samburu, Turkana and Wajir.
WFP’s new Country programme for July 2014-June 2018 emphasizes capacity building of national institutions and county governments to reduce risks and enable them (together with vulnerable communities) to meet their own food and nutrition needs.
