The population facing acute food insecurity and consequently requiring humanitarian assistance has declined significantly to 1.3 million and who are classified in Crisis (IPC Phase 3) and Emergency (IPC Phase 4). The decline from 2.6 million people identified during the long rains’ assessment denotes overall improvement in food security situation across the 23 ASAL counties.  The situation is expected to improve further during the upcoming long rains season despite a looming threat from desert locust. The pastoral and agro-pastoral counties reported great improvement in both environmental and productive indicators. Pasture and browse are at an all-time high following good regeneration and expected to last up to the next season.
