Corno de África enfranta a pior seca em décadas

April 19, 2022 - Pode haver 29 mihões de pessoas com necessidade de ajuda alimentar urgente no Corno de África, que enfrenta a pior seca em 40 anos.

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.
