Extreme drought, displacement

Body

The ongoing drought has already displaced over 568,300 people. In January 2022, movements increased by 245% when compared to December 2021, with a total of 310,313 people displaced in one month. 

More families are being displaced during this drought than over that of 2017: 151,000 people were displaced between October 2016 and January 2017, compared to 456,000 people between October 2021 and January 2022.

3.6 million people lack sufficient water access. Severe water shortages and inadequate access to sanitation and hygiene facilities have raised the risk of diseases and measles outbreaks are reported. Without a scale up of humanitarian assistance, some 4.1 million people (25% of the population) are estimated to face acute food insecurity at Crisis (IPC Phase 3) levels or worse outcomes through mid-2022.

Over 1.4 million children, nearly half of the under-5 population, are likely to suffer from acute malnutrition. Admissions of children with severe acute malnutrition have increased from 19,000 in December 2021 to 26,000 in January 2022.
