East Africa Drought 2011

Evaluation Reports for the East Africa Response

In East Africa in 2011, one of the worst droughts in 60 years left more than 13 million people in need of food, water and emergency healthcare. The countries of Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, and the newly-formed Republic of South Sudan  were directly affected by the crisis. Hundreds of thousands of people fled Somalia due to the drought and conflict, and parts of the country were afflicted by famine.

Canadian donors contributed $14 million to the Humanitarian Coalition’s joint appeal. The money raised helped hundreds of thousands of people with activities such as the delivery of emergency food, basic healthcare, and water sanitation kits. Nutrition centres and child education programs also played a significant role in our member agencies’ response.

As part of its commitment to transparency and accountability, the Humanitarian Coalition conducts a series of evaluations both to measure impact and identify lessons learned. Those evaluation reports are posted on our website as they become available. We invite the general public and our colleagues in the humanitarian sector to consult them.
