Drought conditions, disease outbreaks, displacement and returnees continued to drive needs across Somalia. The food security situation in southern and central regions is worryingly worsening. This is happening against the backdrop of an already fragile humanitarian situation.
Some 4.7 million people continue to require life-saving and livelihood support.
FOOD SECURITY AND NUTRITION SITUATION
Some 4.7 million people continue to require life-saving assistance and livelihood support in Somalia. The number of poor households faced with acute food insecurity in Somalia is expected to increase until September 2016, according to the Famine Early Warning Systems Network.
2016 SOMALIA POOLED FUND
Somalia pooled funds have so far allocated $35.2 million to support life-saving and life-sustaining humanitarian activities in Somalia. The amount includes $22.3 million from the Somalia Humanitarian Fund (SHF) and $12.9 million from the Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF) rapid response window.
HUMANITARIAN RESPONSE PLAN (HRP)
To date, US$283 million has been received for humanitarian activities in Somalia. The funding includes $206 million or 23 per cent of the $885 million requested under the 2016 HRP and $77 million for humanitarian activities not included in the HRP.
The funding is not adequate to respond to the current humanitarian needs. Urgent contributions are required to support the implementation of the 2016 HRP activities, including response to the Acute Watery Diarrhoea (AWD)/cholera outbreak in Somalia.
Since January 2016, an outbreak of Acute Watery Diarrhoea (AWD) /Cholera has affected southern and central Somalia, while severe flooding has been experienced in Belet Weyne district in Hiraan region. In Puntland and Somaliland drought has affected the livelihoods of thousands of people. These come amid an already fragile humanitarian situation. Overall some 4.7 million people require life-saving assistance and livelihood support
HUMANITARIAN RESPONSE PLAN (HRP)
To date, US$231million has been received for life-saving and life-sustaining activities in Somalia. The funding includes $161 million or 18 per cent of the $885 million requested under the 2016 Humanitarian Response Plan (HRP) and $70 million for humanitarian activities not included in the HRP.
The humanitarian needs in Somalia remain immense with about 4.7 million people requiring life-saving assistance and livelihood support. The Gu rainy season started in early April. This is the main planting season in Somalia. The rains are critical for improving the humanitarian situation, especially for 1.7 million people in need in drought-affected areas of Puntland and Somaliland. Sufficient rains will be vital for crop production, pasture growth and replenishment of water resources, especially in agro-pastoral and pastoral livelihood zones.

The food security and malnutrition situation in Somalia remains alarming, especially in parts of Puntland and Somaliland, which have been hard hit by drought exacerbated by El Niño. This is according to the latest assessment by the FAO-managed Food Security and Nutrition Analysis Unit (FSNAU). More than 4.7 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance, of these about 950,000 are severely food insecure and are unable to meet their daily food needs. Nearly 305,000 children under age 5 are acutely malnourished, with 58,300 of them severely malnourished.
In 2015, acute humanitarian needs persisted in Somalia and require urgent attention to avert millions of vulnerable people from sliding back into crisis. An estimated 4.9 million people are in need of lifesaving and livelihoods support. In spite of the challenging operating environment, partners reached nearly 2.5 million people with urgent life-saving assistance. More than $605 million was received for humanitarian response in Somalia in 2015. This includes $374 million (43 per cent) of the $863 million requested for the 2015 HRP.
Humanitarian needs remain acute with persistent vulnerabilities. About 4.9 million people are in need of assistance. Over 1.1 million people remain internally displaced, and another one million are refugees in neighboring countries. Flooding resulting from the 2015 Deyr rains affected over 145,200 people. About 308,000 children under age 5 are acutely malnourished, with 56,000 of them in need of urgent treatment and therapeutic food to survive.
