From mid-2016 to mid-2017, a severe drought occurred across the Horn of Africa. Rainfall was erratic and significantly below-average during both the October-December 2016 and the March-May 2017 seasons. This drought greatly limited crop production, pasture growth and water availability. In Somalia and Ethiopia in particular, food security impacts are expected to be severe. This report presents a series of maps which illustrate the extent and the severity of the drought, and its impacts on crop and rangeland conditions and on food prices.
