Humanitarian assistance continues across Somalia and as at mid-year about 658,000 Somalis or over 23 per cent of the 2.8 million target benefi ciaries had been assisted and protected through various interventions. Countrywide acute malnutrition levels were lowered from 14.9 to 12 per cent. During the same period, no polio cases were reported as a result of concerted vaccination campaigns against polio since 2014. This means the outbreak phase is likely to be declared over, although the risk of importation exists.
2015 CHF ALLOCATION
The CHF allocated $30 million for the first standard allocation. Aligned to the 2015 HRP, it aims to provide timely and quality life-saving assistance, envisaging three outcomes including; contribute to reduce the number of people in emergency and crisis, improve the nutritional situation in internally displaced persons (IDP) settlements with the most alarming malnutrition rates and address acute needs of vulnerable people in new areas with improved access
SOMALIA HUMANITARIAN RESPONSE PLAN 2015
The Somalia Humanitarian Response Plan (HRP) is funded at 26 per cent having received US$227 million against the $863 million requested. An additional $95 million has been contributed to projects outside the appeal bringing to $322 million the total reported humanitarian funding.
The funding received is not commensurate with the humanitarian needs in Somalia. Adequate and sustained funding is required to keep critical life-saving humanitarian and protection activities running.
The humanitarian situation in Somalia remains fragile.
According to FAO’s Food Security and Nutrition Analysis Unit (FSNAU) monitoring, food security conditions for agricultural dependent livelihoods are likely to deteriorate due to below average harvest outlook. However, pastoral dependent areas may see modest improvements following recent rains that improved pasture and water availability. A total of 3 million people need humanitarian and livelihood assistance including 731,000 in emergency and crisis.
Humanitarian assistance continues across Somalia and as of 30 May, partners have treated about 107,000 children under five for acute malnutrition and reached 335,000 people with food assistance focusing on those in emergency and crisis.
Displacement and conflict
Around 1.542 million people are internally displaced in South Sudan, and over 546,000 have crossed borders and become refugees. About 106,228 people have fled Burundi, and about 25,000 have left Yemen (where 1 million people are internally displaced)3 for Djibouti and Somalia. Areas of conflict in South Sudan and Yemen remain very difficult for humanitarian organizations to access, pushing more to cross borders in search of assistance.
Increase in mostly South Sudanese and Burundian refugees
Somalia’s humanitarian crisis remains fragile. A total of 3 million people need humanitarian assistance including 731,000 in emergency and crisis. This continues to be compounded by floods, forced evictions of internally displaced people, and the people fleeing conflict in Yemen. However, almost halfway through 2015, only 26 per cent of funding against the Humanitarian Response Plan for 2015 has been covered. This is affecting the capacity of humanitarian partners to respond to these increasing needs.
