23 million people in the Horn, East and Central Africa are facing facing severe levels of hunger. Donate now.

Overview

Battered by cyclones and ravaged by extreme drought, poor communities in the Horn of Africa and Mozambique have found themselves on the front line of a climate crisis they did little to create. Yet the international community has largely abandoned the world’s poorest countries – providing support worth an average of just $3 per person per year ‒ or less than a cent a day – to protect themselves from the devastating impacts of crisis. As world leaders gather for the UN Climate Action Summit in New York next week, Oxfam is calling for more than hot air and empty promises. We need ambitious emission reductions, more money to help poor communities to adapt, and action to tackle existing problems – including the debt crisis – that make people more vulnerable.
