Kenya: Post Disaster Needs Assessment - droughts in 2008-2011

During the drought period (2008-2011), 3.7 million people were in immediate need of food, clean water, and basic sanitation in Kenya and urgent short and long-term interventions were needed to save the lives and livelihoods of millions. In response, under the auspices of Kenyan Ministry of Finance, a joint assessment team comprised of government line ministry staff, together with the EU, UN, World Bank, and other partners, mobilized to undertake a Post-Disaster Needs Assessment (PDNA).

The aim of this assessment was to develop a quantitative estimation of the impact of the drought on the socio-economic development of the country and recommendations of immediate recovery and long-term resilience-building in the country.
