More EU funding for the Horn of Africa

The Council of Ministers on 24 November approved EUR 23.86 million in commitments to the Horn of Africa, in addition to the EUR 157.4 million of humanitarian assistance which the EU has already provided to Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia and Djibouti. The new resources will be used notably for food assistance, interventions in under-funded sectors like health and water and assistance to refugees. The eastern Horn of Africa has experienced two consecutive seasons of significantly below-average rainfall which led to failed crop production, livestock mortality and has driven food prices to record levels.
