Protecting and Rebuilding Livelihoods in Arid and Semi-Arid Areas

Countries: Kenya | Operations ID: 200294 | Operations type: Protracted Relief and Recovery Operation (PRRO)

This Operation has expired on 30 April 2015.

Eighty percent of Kenya is arid and semi-arid land with pervasive climate shocks, food insecurity and poverty; 4.3 million people live in arid areas. Kenya’s economy is the largest and most diversified in East Africa, but drought and rising food and fuel prices affect food security. Kenya depends on imports to help feed its people.
