Launch of Drought Risk Management and early warning information campaign in Turkana County  


Rainfall received in April across many parts of the ASALs has provided some reprieve, replenishing water sources and regenerating pasture and browse to some degree. Distances to water are reducing but are still well above normal. Livestock body condition and milk production are starting to improve, particularly among browsers, although the effect of the season on livestock productivity should be more apparent next month. However, any positive impacts are likely to be modest and short-lived, since the rains have generally been below normal and poorly distributed and therefore unlikely to sustain recovery throughout the coming dry period. Moreover, some areas have received very little rainfall, even none.
