Kenya, Baringo, Rift Valley Province. 20 February 2018.  In Kenya, the people most vulnerable to food insecurity live in urban informal settlementsand in the arid and semi-arid regions that make up 80 percent of the country’s land area. A quarter of the population lives in these regions, which suffer from poverty, structural underdevelopment, conflict and disease. Droughts and unpredictable rain patterns exacerbate the situation, and 47 percent of the country’s overall population lives below the poverty line.  WFP supports communities in building or repairing assets such as small dams, terraces, water pans, irrigation systems, fodder fields and tree farms. This promotes longer-term resilience by increasing agricultural productivity and allowing communities to grow more food, diversify incomes, keep livestock healthy and protect the environment. WFP’s asset creation activities are a key element of support for the Government’s Ending Drought Emergency Plan.  In the Photo: A beneficiary displays new hand tools given by WFP to enable the community undertake asset creation activities.   Photo: WFP/Martin Karimi
