Project General Description

The present emergency aid for humanitarian assistance to drought victims in 2011 in Djibouti has been requested by the Government because of the severity of the drought. This drought is considered as the most severe known for 60 years and is at the origin of a serious food crisis in the region. In view of the alarming situation and in order to guard against the acceleration of the deterioration of the living conditions of the populations, the UN renewed in June 2011 the call for funds launched in November 2010. In this context, the support of the African Development Bank (AfDB) was proposed to the operation. The AfDB's intervention in this aid is intended to help alleviate the vulnerability of drought victims in Djibouti. The total cost of this intervention is estimated at one million US $.

Project Objectives

The objective of the emergency humanitarian aid proposed by the ADB is to contribute to the Government's efforts and the United Nations by distributing emergency food aid and water tank trucks to families affected by the drought.


The intervention identified 90000 people in the most vulnerable population to whom emergency food aid will be provided. These people are for 60,000 in rural areas, 17,000 in health centers and 13,000 are refugees.
