Horn von Africa erwartet schwerste Dürre in Jahrzehnten

April 19, 2022 - Nicht weniger als 29 Millionen Menschen in vier afrikanischen Ländern erwarten extreme Härtefälle und Nahrungsmangel, da die längste Dürreperiode, die die Region bisher erlebt hat, das Horn von Afrika fest im Griff hat.

Meteorologists are linking the unfolding drought to human-caused climate change which is leading to increased warming in the Indian Ocean, causing more frequent cyclones, according to AP.

Below average rainfall for 2022 are likely to prolong the already extremely dry conditions which have not been experienced to this degree since 1981. Ethiopia, Kenya and Somalia – which will be severely impacted by the reduced rains – are already in the midst of a dire famine.
