Somalia: Humanitarian Snapshot, March 2014 | Issued on 15 April 2014

The military offensive by the Somali National Armed Forces and the African Union Mission in Somalia in southern and central Somalia began one month ago.

Since then, six regions have been directly affected. The offensive has so far led to the temporary movement of over 40,000 people.

This is against a backdrop of 2.9 million people who need immediate life-saving and livelihoods support. Somalia continues to be one of the most volatile and operationally challenging environments for humanitarian workers.

Somalia: Humanitarian Snapshot, October 2013 | Issued on 12 November 2013

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.

IDP RELOCATIONS

In September 2013, the Somali Government expressed its desire to restart the stalled Mogadishu internally displaced people (IDP) relocation process. The process was initiated in January 2013, but stalled in July due to the government’s inability to provide security in the potential relocation site in Daynile district.

Somalia: Humanitarian Dashboard (as of 30 September 2013)

SITUATION OVERVIEW

An estimated 870,000 people require urgent humanitarian assistance while an additional 2.3 million require livelihood support until the end of the year. This is the lowest number ever since famine was declared in 2011 according to a joint report by the Food Security and Nutrition Analysis Unit (FSNAU) and the Famine Early Warning Systems Network (FEWS NET). This reduction is attributed to successive seasons of average to above average rainfall, low food prices and sustained humanitarian response.

Somalia: Humanitarian Snapshot, August 2013 | Issued on 05 September 2013

FOOD SECURITY

The number of people in crisis in Somalia is at its lowest since famine was declared in 2011 according to a joint report by Food Security and Nutrition Analysis Unit (FSNAU) and the Famine Early Warning Systems Network (FEWS NET). This is attributed to successive seasons of average to above average rainfall, low food prices and sustained humanitarian response. However, the gains are fragile and the humanitarian needs in Somalia remain enormous, with an estimated 870,000 people expected to remain in crisis and emergency between August and December 2013.
