Releasing Public Maps of the Famine Crisis and Relief Efforts in the Horn of Africa

Free to use and share maps show operational efforts on the ground and extent of crisis

Over 13 million people in the Horn of Africa are facing a hunger crisis. Drought, conflict, and rising food prices have led to a famine that will last for months. More than 45 humanitarian and relief organizations are working to mitigate the disaster, though, an estimated 170,000 children are severely malnourished and at risk of starvation. Under these circumstances, operational efficiency is critical. To help we’re organizing a public directory of maps that explain and measure the impact of the crisis and the relief efforts meant to reduce its impact.
