The 2017 long rains mid-season assessment has estimated that between 3 million to 3.5 million people in the pastoral, agro-pastoral and marginal agricultural areas will require assistance. Poor crop performance is expected over most parts of the country especially in the southeast and coastal areas while poor regeneration of range resources across most of the pastoral zones is likely to result in their rapid deterioration from June hence a likelihood of more livestock mortality during the peak of the lean season.
