The level of humanitarian assistance delivered in December and throughout 2012 remained high, with 1.2 million people receiving food and 1.6 million accessing clean water on average every month.

Somalia: Humanitarian Dashboard (November 2012) - Info graphic

Situation overview

  • The Somalia Consolidated Appeal Plan (CAP) was launched on 4 December in Mogadishu, marking the first time the CAP was presented inside Somalia. The funding appeal aims to address immediate needs of Somalis in crisis and strengthen resilience of communities in a country which has been plagued by conflict, drought, floods and food insecurity for two decades. For the first time, the humanitarian strategy spans three years, from 2013 to 2015. This allows for greater continuity in programming which is vital to address the protracted nature of the crisis.

Refugee Camps in North Eastern Province, Kenya, Alinjugur & Dadaab Sub-Offices

General overview

Operational environment:

There were indications of an increase in the number of new arrivals from Somalia to the Dadaab/Alinjugur camps. UNHCR partners reported as many as 100 persons new arrivals per day though this has been difficult to verify. These new refugees were mainly settling in the outskirts of Dagahaley and in Ifo 2. Registration of new arrivals was still suspended. Due to the prevailing insecurity, Refugee Consortium Kenya (RCK) cancelled border monitoring activities along part of the Somalia border.
