Severe Drought in the Horn of Africa



Severe and prolonged hydrological droughts are frequent over the Greater Horn of Africa.
Since October 2016 this region has been stricken by an extreme drought that had a strong impact in vegetation conditions during the growing season being responsible by significant losses in crops and pasture productions.
The image shows the evolution of the drought impact on the Fraction of Vegetation Cover (FVC) between November 2016 and March 2017.
Areas with less vegetation cover than usual are represented in brown.
