Major announcement: Famine has been declared today in two regions of Southern Somalia. This crisis represents the most serious food insecurity situation in the world today, in terms of both scale and severity.
Is there still time to intervene? The current humanitarian response is inadequate to meet emergency needs, but lives can still be saved with an immediate, massive, multisectoral response.
