This report has been developed collectively with humanitarian partners in the region to inform preparedness and advocacy efforts to mitigate and manage humanitarian risk in the Horn of Africa and Great Lakes region. It presents a four-month trend analysis from June to September 2016 and a humanitarian outlook from October to December 2016. It is the fifth report in the series and updates the previous scenario report which was published in April 2016.
Although the El Niño weather event has passed its impact continues to be felt in the region: food insecurity doubled from 12 million in August 2015 to 23.4 million today. Humanitarian partners are targeting 1.25 million children under five for severe acute malnutrition (SAM) this year, of which nearly 83 per cent are from Ethiopia, South Sudan, Sudan and Somalia. Violence and rising food insecurity in South Sudan and Burundi have displaced nearly 290,000 people (205,541 refugees and 84,459 internally displaced) in the last 3 months alone.
In Sortony and Tawilla, authorities halted IOM's registration and verification processes in mid-February. As a result, figures underwent revision and have now been amended according to WFP's latest beneficiary figure in July.
In Boori and Wadi Boori, confirmation on reported displacement to the area and / or to other areas remains impossible due to insufficient humanitarian access.
All HAC return figures are considered as reported as there has been no verification.
This Humanitarian Snapshot provides an overview of the humanitarian situation in Sudan, as of 30 September 2016, using information obtained from UN agencies and partners, including the Government of Sudan. People living in protracted displacement in Darfur since 2003 and those displaced or affected by conflict in South Kordofan and Blue Nile States since 2011 account for most people in need of humanitarian aid.
During September, 61,000 children under five were screened in IDP and refugee camps, 2,800 of whom were identified with severe acute malnutrition (SAM) and admitted for treatment.
About 7,500 returnees in Um Baru locality, North Darfur received essential household supplies and improved shelters in the past week.

Since February, Haroun Adam, 15, and his brother Abdelraziq Adam, 13, have been living in Sortony, Darfur, in a so-called gathering site of makeshift shelters for internally displaced persons (IDPs). The boys and their family had to flee their home in Darfur’s mountainous Jebel Marra region when violence broke out between the Sudanese Armed Forces and a faction of the Sudan Liberation Army, whose stronghold lies in inner Jebel Marra. This conflict has displaced between 159,000 and 194,000 civilians from the area this year.
FEWS NET says that food security is likely to improve with harvests starting in October / November due to above average rainfall this year.
Since 2011, about 100,000 Syrians have arrived in Sudan, with about 5,500 jointly registered by UNHCR-COR by the end of August 2016.

The Sudan Humanitarian Fund (SHF) is a cost-effective way to support humanitarian action in Sudan. Under the direction of the Humanitarian Coordinator (HC), the SHF aims to support the timely allocation and disbursement of donor resources to the most critical humanitarian needs as defined by the Humanitarian Response Plan (HRP) or any agreed upon strategy by the HC. The SHF provides funding to international and national non–governmental organizations and UN agencies. The SHF receives voluntary donor contributions and supports humanitarian response year–round.
Nearly 7 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance and protection in South Sudan and neighboring countries. Since the beginning of the conflict in December 2013, CERF has allocated a total of $203 million.

The El Niño weather event has been in a neutral phase since May. Nevertheless, it continues to have a devastating impact on vulnerable people in parts of Eastern and Southern Africa, Asia and the Pacific, the Dry Corridor in Central America, and Haiti in the Caribbean. This event will also cause long term consequences for public health, nutrition, livelihoods, water and sanitation.
