Ambassador Godec declares a disaster for worsening drought and food insecurity

Ambassador Robert F. Godec today issued a formal U.S. Government declaration that a major disaster exists in Kenya’s arid and semi-arid lands due to the ongoing drought and resulting food insecurity.  The declaration supports the declaration of emergency and actions taken by the Government of Kenya.

Since 2016, the U.S. Government through U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) has provided more than KSH 10.9 billion (US $109 million) for relief supplies, emergency nutrition response in arid and semi-arid lands, and programs to build resilience in affected communities. The Ambassador’s action makes it possible to authorize U.S. Government emergency funding for response activities and to reprogram current resources.



Ambassador Godec said, “As a strong partner with Kenya for over fifty years, the United States is committed to working with the government and the people of Kenya to address this immediate emergency and protect lives and livelihoods.  We will also continue our support of efforts to address long-term challenges, and to build resilience and capacity in the arid and semi-arid regions of the country.”



The U.S. Embassy in Kenya is coordinating with the Kenyan authorities and international donors in response to the drought and food insecurity.
