The devastating impacts of the 2015-16 El Nino will be felt well into 2017. This crisis was predicted, yet overall, the response has been too little too late. The looming La Nina event may further hit communities that are already deeply vulnerable. To end this cycle of failure, there is an urgent need for humanitarian action where the situation is already dire, to prepare for La Nina later this year, to commit to comprehensive new measures to build communities’ resilience, and to mobilize global action to address climate change which is creating a ‘new normal’ of higher temperatures, drought and unpredictable growing seasons.
