The 2009 Emergency Humanitarian Response Plan (EHRP) for Kenya will target populations affected by internal displacement and climatic hazards as well as food and livelihood insecurity. “A lot of progress has been made in addressing displacement but much remains to be done,” said Aeneas Chuma, the UN resident and humanitarian coordinator, at the launch of the appeal, which will fund essential support for an estimated 1.6 million people in 2009. The Nov. 24 appeal requested USD 390 million and includes projects from more than 50 UN agencies and international and national NGOs. (IRIN)
