The food situation, particularly among pastoralists in drought-affected areas of Kenya, continues to deteriorate.
Pre-famine conditions were already evident in the northeastern region.
Should the 2006 long-rains season be similarly unfavorable, there could be a serious humanitarian and livelihood catastrophe.
