'Dangerous Delay 2: The Cost of Inaction' | East Africa Food Crisis | Oxfam | Oxfam UK

One person is likely to be dying of hunger every 48 seconds in drought-ravaged Ethiopia, Kenya and Somalia, according to estimates by Oxfam and Save the Children contained in a report published today which highlights the world’s repeated failure to stave off preventable disasters.

‘Dangerous Delay 2: The Cost of Inaction’ warns that the world is once again failing to avert catastrophic hunger in East Africa more than a decade since the delayed response to the 2011 famine that killed more than 260,000 people in Somalia – half of them children under five.

The number of people experiencing extreme hunger in Somalia, Ethiopia and Kenya has more than doubled since last year – from over 10 million to more than 23 million.
