DEYR EARLY WARNING

The October – December (Deyr) rains are likely to be average to below average across Somalia according to the Famine Early Warning Systems Network (FEWSNET). In general the rains started late and distribution was reportedly erratic in October; this is forecasted to remain the same through November. It is likely that this would result in increased food insecurity, especially where the previous rains underperformed in agro-pastoral areas of Bakool, Bay and Hiraan regions, and the Sool Plateau in the north.
