This document presents the findings of the drought Post-Disaster Needs Analysis (PDNA) conducted in Kenya. The assessment aims to develop a quantitative estimation of the impact of the drought on the socioeconomic development of Kenya and recommendations for immediate recovery and long-term resilience-building in the country. The findings that have emerged show, in no uncertain terms, Kenya’s vulnerability to droughts and devastating impacts arising not only in the last year but prolonged over the last four years where Kenya has experienced drought varying intensities across various areas.
The following sectors and cross-cutting issues were covered as a part of this assessment: agriculture, livestock, fisheries, agro-industry, health, nutrition, education, energy, water & sanitation, tourism, forestry, wildlife, environment, gender, and disaster risk reduction. For each sector, teams aimed to comprehensively analyze i) damage - the estimated replacement value of physical assets wholly or partly destroyed, built to the same standards as prevailed prior to the disaster; ii) losses – the changes (decrease or increase) in economic flows arising due to the drought; and, iii) needs – the financial requirements to achieve economic recovery and reconstruction after the drought.
