The Government, together with development partners under the Kenya Food Security Steering Group (KFSSG) in collaboration with the respective County Steering Groups (CSGs) carried out the seasonal Long Rains Food and Nutritional Security Assessment in July 2022 across the ASALs. Out of the 23 ASAL counties analyzed, 15 counties are classified in IPC Phase 3. The number of people in IPC Phase 4 (emergency) is 785,000 (5 percent) and 2.8 million (18 percent) in IPC Phase 3 (Crisis). Nine (9) counties, predominantly pastoral livelihoods, have over 40 percent of their population in IPC phase 3 or worse. These are Isiolo (50 percent), Turkana (50 percent), Garissa (45 percent), Mandera (45 percent), Marsabit (45 percent), Samburu (45percent), Wajir (45percent), Baringo (40percent). It is projected that the food security situation is likely to worsen between October and December 2022 and 4.4 million people may require assistance. Overall, 3.1 million will likely be in Crisis (IPC Phase 3) and 1.2 million in Emergency (IPC Phase 4).

The KFSSG is a multi-agency body comprised of government departments, United Nations (UN) agencies, and Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) concerned with food and nutrition security.
