Wikipedia: Horn of Africa Famine

"The famine was declared in response to new data from the UN's food security and nutrition analysis unit.[43][14] This is the first time the UN has declared a famine since the 1984–1985 famine in Ethiopia, when over a million people died.[5] Under international law, there is no mandated response which must follow from an official declaration of famine. However, it is hoped that the use of the term will serve as a "wake-up call" to the rest of the world, who have so far failed to respond.[5]"
