Uganda Could be Next, Warns FAO

FAO has warned that Uganda could be the next country hit by alarming malnutrition rates due to drought which has already sparked famine in southern Somalia and hunger in Kenya, Ethiopia and Djibouti

The United Nations’ Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) has warned that Uganda could be the next country hit by alarming malnutrition rates due to drought which has already sparked famine in southern Somalia and hunger in Kenya, Ethiopia and Djibouti.

FAO argues that famine has already been detected in drought-hit northern areas of Uganda, adding that an estimated 600 000 people face moderate food insecurity.

FAO’s Sandra Aviles has been quoted as saying that, “Drought conditions need to be monitored because they spread like wildfire."
