We are responding in Somalia to help people forced from their homes by drought. This was caused by consecutive failed rainy seasons.

Drought is causing people to move in search of water and food. It has also led to increasing food prices. Conflict in some areas of Somalia is also forcing people from their homes. Although some rains arrived in 2023, they fell on drought hardened ground and caused flash flooding.

The climate in Somalia is typically hot, with periodic Monsoon winds and rain. Somalia is classified as the second most at risk country to climate change in the world. Changes in weather patterns have seen increasing droughts, periods of flooding and locust swarms.
