All ASAL counties received favourable rainfall in April which supported considerable improvement in pasture and browse situation, water availability and access. Water levels have improved since most surface water sources were recharged to over 80 percent of their normal capacity. Livestock body condition and milk production are starting to improve, while overall, the season has been favourable to crop production.

The quantity and quality of both pasture and browse in most ASAL areas is good in all the livelihood zones. Nearly all counties reported the current state of pasture as being above normal when compared to the same period of the year.
