Abstract: In southern Ethiopia, Eastern Kenya, and southern Somalia, poor boreal spring rains in the recent years contributed to severe food insecurity and high levels of malnutrition. Predicting rainfall deficits in this region on seasonal and decadal time frames can help decision makers implement disaster risk reduction measures.
Itoobiyada koonfureed, bari Kenya iyo koofur Soomaaliya, waxaa dadkooda la soo gudboonaaday, roob yari darteed, sannadahan dambe, gaajo iyo nafaqadarro.
Nell'Etiopia meridionale, nel Kenya orientale e in Somalia meridionale, le scarse piogge boreali degli ultimi anni hanno contribuito a una grave insicurezza alimentare e alti livelli di malnutrizione. Prevedere i deficit delle precipitazioni può aiutare gli attori interessati nell'attuare misure per la riduzione del rischio di catastrofi.
