In the absence of a political solution, the humanitarian situation in Yemen continues to deteriorate. In search of safety and livelihoods, over 2.8 million people continue to be on the move in Yemen. With their safety nets depleted, as savings dwindle and remittances from abroad dry up, more people are moving to makeshift and spontaneous settlements and are turning to negative coping strategies for survival. This includes increased child labour and early marriage. The added stresses on host communities are also increasing as the economy collapses.
Protection of civilians remains a concern

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
APERÇU DE LA SITUATION
I am pleased to share with you the 2015 Annual Report for the Common Humanitarian Fund (CHF) in Somalia.
The report provides an overview of 2015 contributions, funding allocations and partner achievements for the projects implemented during the course of the year.
The humanitarian impact of the 2015-2016 El Niño remains deeply alarming, now affecting over 60 million people. Central America, East Africa (particularly Ethiopia), the Pacific and Southern Africa remain the most affected regions. The El Niño phenomenon is now in decline, but projections indicate the situation will worsen throughout at least the end of the year, with food insecurity caused primarily by drought not likely to peak before December. Therefore, the humanitarian impacts will last well into 2017 .
Somalia: Informing drought response in the Somaliland and Puntland States
As of 30 May 2016, financial requirements of UN-coordinated Humanitarian Response Plans, Flash Appeals and Regional Refugee Plans as reflected in the Global Humanitarian Overview (GHO) amount to an unprecedented US$20.8 billion and are expected to rise. These appeals are currently funded at $4.8 billion, or 23 per cent. $16 billion in financial requirements remain unmet. Overall, humanitarian operations in 2016 are funded at almost $9.2 billion.
