U.N. Dispatch Provides Update On Food Security Situation In Somalia

U.N. Dispatch: Why the United Nations is Suddenly Warning About Drought and Famine in Somalia
Mark Leon Goldberg, executive editor of U.N. Dispatch, discusses food security in Somalia, writing, “[M]oving from crisis level to emergency level means food security has gotten considerably worse, in many cases forcing people to completely liquidate whatever assets they have to survive. … There is no famine in Somalia … yet. But if this crisis continues and if [the U.N. appeal for] $700 million is not raised from international donors, famine could strike Somalia later this year” (6/5).
