European Commissioner for Development, Andris Piebalgs, will go to Kenya to address the issues related to food insecurity in the country and in the Horn of Africa region. The Commissioner will present an EU initiative, called "Supporting Horn of Africa Resilience (SHARE)", which will help people in the Horn of Africa to recover from the recent drought and to strengthen their ability -and that of the regional economy- to better withstand future crises.
The Commissioner will meet with several Kenyan officials, including President Mwai Kibaki and Prime Minister Raila Odinga.
