Ethiopia: Drought Update No. 2, March 2022 – Ethiopia


Ethiopia is experiencing a prolonged drought following three consecutive failed rainy seasons since late 2020 affecting 6.8 million people living in Oromia, SNNP, Southwest and Somali. This update provides an overview of the drought situation in the country including the current needs and ongoing response as well as funding requirements and allocations as per information received. It complements the previous drought update available here. This update provides a snapshot of available information as it continues to be collected from the different drought-affected areas and the response is being scaled up. The map presents the drought affected areas and will be augmented with areas of concerns in subsequent updates to support early action. This update will be attached to a specific drought response plan currently under development, as an integral part of the Humanitarian Response Plan for Ethiopia in 2022 to be released in a few weeks. The funding reported includes new funding committed to the drought response as well as funding reprogrammed to support this emergency response. Additional funding to support the response is urgently needed across sectors over the next few months to respond to increasing needs.
