Horn of Africa drying ever faster as climate warms

9 octubre 2015

The Horn of Africa has become increasingly arid in sync with the global and regional warming of the last century and at a rate unprecedented in the last 2,000 years, according to new research. The scientists suggest that as global and regional warming continues, the eastern Horn of Africa — which includes Somalia, Djibouti and Ethiopia — will receive progressively less rain during the crucial ‘long rains’ season of March, April and May.
