- Temperature trends indicate that this drought is hotter than it would have been without climate change
- Identifies no detectable trend in rainfall, but the team cannot exclude small changes in the risk of poor rains linked to climate change
- States that all methods apart from EC-Earth in SE Kenya show either no trend or a decrease in likelihood of the drought
- The station results indicate that the 2010-11 drought was worse than the current drought in Lamu and comparable to the current drought in Marsabit
