What can mapping tell us about famine? The devil is in the detail. Or in this case, the distribution.

For map nerds like myself, we tend to take in spatial information better than straight up numbers and statistics, and the World Food Programme, along with Development Seed, are mapping the wide-reaching effects of the famine all across East Africa. The map below shows all the WFP’s distribution centers in the region, the hardest hit areas in red, as well as some statistics and funding numbers.

According to Matador’s Richard Stupart:

Note how the famine follows national and provincial borders? Natural disasters don’t do that. Disasters of politics, markets, and economic policy do.

Definitely a lot of food for thought, especially since many media outlets are reporting the famine as most likely man-made. If you’re looking for ways to help and reach famine victims, we’ve compiled a quick list of five international organizations worth contributing to.
