Somalia: Humanitarian Snapshot (as of 7 August 2014)

Humanitarian needs in Somalia remained immense, with 2.9 million people requiring assistance. Poor rainfall, continued conflict, surging food prices, increasing malnutrition and the restricted flow of commercial goods all contributed to worsen an already fragile situation. A significant funding shortfall and access restrictions reduced response capacity to reach people in need.

Somalia: Humanitarian Snapshot (as of June 2014)

Food security situation in Somalia is expected to deteriorate in the second half of the year, according to FAO’s Food Security and Nutrition Analysis Unit (FSNAU) and Famine Early Warning Systems Network (FEWSNET). The food crisis could worsen due to poor and erratic rains, continued conflict, restricted flow of commercial goods, increasing malnutrition and surging food prices. Due to below normal rains, the overall harvest is expected to be poor, resulting in cereal prices rising significantly in the southern parts of Somalia.

Somalia: Humanitarian Snapshot (as of May 2014)

Somalia is at risk of sliding back into emergency. Early warnings that the food security situation is likely to worsen due to a combination of erratic and delayed Gu (April-June) rains, a disrupted planting season, and a blockage of supply routes leading to rising food prices. Resumption of rainfall since early May have helped alleviate moisture stress on planted crops in agriculture dependent areas and replenished water and pasture in pastoral areas. Even with erratic rains, parts of southern Somalia have experienced flash floods which have destroyed crops and displaced households.
