A Dangerous Delay
The cost of late response to early warnings in the 2011 drought in the Horn of Africa.
The 2011 crisis in the Horn of Africa has been the most severe emergency of its kind this century.
More than 13 million people are still affected, with hundreds of thousands placed at risk of starvation.
Tragically, this not an isolated case. The response to drought is invariably too little too late, representing a systemic failure of the international system – both ‘humanitarian’ and ‘development’.
This briefing examines the factors that allowed a drought to develop into a full-scale crisis of hunger and livelihoods.
