MOGADISHU [SMN] – The deputy Prime minister of Somalia Salah Ahmed Jama attended a climate change and food insecurity meeting organized by the World Bank.

 

In his keynote speech at the conference, Jama said that the climate crisis affected Africa at large and Somalia in particular as the nation faces the worst drought in 40 years.

The ongoing drought hit 7.8 million people, mostly pastoralists and farmers, who are now migrating from their regions to the big cities in search of food and water.

The deputy PM appealed for urgent humanitarian aid to the country to save the lives of millions who are at risk of famine by the end of this year as the UN has warned.
