Siti Zone was affected by the 2011 drought which affected the pastoral and agro pastoral communities in the area. The communities run, with the support of ECHO, initiatives that aim to mitigate the impact of future droughts and build the resilience of communities themselves. ©Malini Morzaria/EU/ECHO
