Kenya in Kenya (a country of 580,367 square kilometers and 41 million inhabitants), it is estimated that more than 2.4 million people from areas of grazing in the North and northeast of the country do not reach to meet their basic needs of food, that have been mitigated by the rising prices of food and the prolonged ctos of the drought of 2007-2009.
