08/06/2012 - The dry lands of the HoA face recurrent droughts. Having recovered from the worst in 60 years, only a year ago, pastoral communities are still vulnerable and call for 'doing business differently. The European Commission's Humanitarian aid department (ECHO) has over the years disbursed aid to address the impact of the emergency and save lives and livelihoods. In 2012, the Commission is focusing on life-saving actions as well as reinforcing the abilities of communities to cope with the effects of increasing droughts. While droughts cannot be prevented; their impact can be mitigated.
