Recurrent droughts have eroded the population's ability to regain their lives and incomes in northern Kenya. The European Commission's Humanitarian aid and Civil Protection department (ECHO) has been funding emergency interventions in northern Kenya for years working on community based drought preparedness and helping build the resilience of villagers themselves to better prepare for the next shock. However humanitarian aid alone will not build the resilience of the populations facing more frequent and more intense droughts. The communities are calling for better development; education, healthcare and access to services. The European Union's 'Supporting the Horn of Africa's Resilience' aims at boosting resilience in the HoA by addressing recovery from drought: build on emergency interventions; strengthen the livelihood opportunities of agro-pastoral communities; improve public services and boost the response to crises.
