A major drought and famine occurred in Somalia due to a significant decrease in precipitation in 2010 and 2011. Severe humanitarian crises occurred in many parts of Somalia as a result of the famine. Thousands of people could not get enough food as a result of food shortages. Again, due to water scarcity, agriculture and animal husbandry, which are the main economic livelihoods of the country, came to a halt, thousands of acres of agricultural crops and tens of thousands of animals were destroyed.
Although the severe drought in 2011 was over, its effects still continue. Currently, 70% of families in the country do not have access to clean and safe water. In addition, diseases due to water deficiency, animal deaths, and harvest losses are still a problem in Somalia. In addition to the lack of water and food in the country, the activities of various terrorist organizations in Somalia are exacerbating the humanitarian crisis. There is no stable political and economic life in Somalia, where terrorist activities such as bomb attacks and child abduction take place frequently.
