The livestock crisis in Kenya and the Greater Horn of Africa region has reached alarming proportions, with more than 8 million animals lost due to feed and fodder shortages, as reported by the African Union InterAfrican Bureau (AU-IBAR) for Animal Resources.


This devastating situation has not only resulted in significant economic losses for thousands of families, but it has also made highly nutritious livestock products such as milk, meat, and eggs unaffordable for those who need them the most, according to AU-IBAR. 

The primary cause of the shortage can be attributed to the adverse effects of climate change, which have led to unpredictable weather patterns and prolonged drought seasons.

Compounding the already dire situation is the impact of the global COVID-19 pandemic and the ongoing Russia-Ukraine war, further exacerbating the challenges faced by the region.
