The crises include an ongoing regional drought which directly threatens the lives and livelihoods of Somalis, most vulnerable communities.

Denmark has promised to provide more than $13 million to help developing countries that have suffered losses as a result of climate disturbances, making it the first nation to provide "loss and damage" compensation to the most vulnerable regions to the effects of climate change.
Flemming Mller Mortensen, the Danish Minister for Development, made the commitment on the fringes of the UNGA, stating that the Sahel region in northwest Africa and other fragile regions would receive the new climate money.
“I am very happy that we have agreed to increase support for climate-related losses and damages,” he said in a statement. “It is grossly unfair that the world’s poorest should suffer the most from the consequences of climate change, to which they have contributed the least.”
