SHARE initiative to try to compensate for effects of drought in Kenya

With the aim to helping Kenya better face its food security challenges, mainly a result of regular droughts, the EU has recently announced that it will allocate Sh4.3 billion (around €39 million) to the country. Main areas of work will be health, nutrition, water supply, and sanitation, with a particular focus on women and children. The fund is part of "Supporting Horn of Africa Resilience (SHARE)", an EU initiative that is to improve disaster preparedness in the Horn of Africa.
EU Commissioner for Development, Andris Piebalgs, who has recently been on tour in Kenya, has underlined that the EU will focus on the areas of agriculture and food security, making sure that all parts of the chain, from production to sale, are addressed at the regional level.
