The Gu rains from April to June 2016 provided some relief and reduced the impact of the drought in parts of Puntland and Somaliland. According to the Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) managed Somalia Water and Land Information Management (SWALIM) Awdal, Woqooyi Galbeed and Toghdeer regions received near average to above average rainfall compared to the long term mean for the period. Recovery from the drought nevertheless remains very slow. The remaining parts of Somaliland, and most areas in Puntland recorded below average rains that were sporadic and ended prematurely.
Le coordonnateur des secours d’urgence a décidé d’allouer 50 millions de dollars du Fonds central pour les interventions d’urgence (CERF) afin d’aider deux millions de personnes vivant dans six pays victimes de crises oubliées. Les fonds alloués permettront de maintenir des secours d’urgence essentiels là où les besoins sont critiques et les ressources insuffisantes :
Au Yémen où sévit une grave crise humanitaire, et où plus de personnes sont dans le besoin que partout ailleurs (13 millions de personnes).
A joint OCHA and UNICEF Mission to Belet Xaawo (Belet Hawa) started on 12 June 2016. The team met with Belet Hawa Cholera Preparedness Task Force, WASH and Health partners in the district, Local Authority and MoH District Medical Officer. The mission was composed of meetings and observation visits to existing health facilities.
A joint drought response monitoring mission was conducted from 14 – 20 May, 2016. The findings of the report are based on data and information gathered by the teams through interviews with local authorities, community representatives, key informants, community meetings, group discussions and direct observations in each location that was visited. The mission comprising UN and NGOs and led by OCHA and HADMA was divided into four teams, two from Bossaso and the other two from Garowe.
The Emergency Relief Coordinator has approved $50 million from the Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF) during the 2016 second underfunded emergencies allocation round to assist about 2 million people in neglected crises in six countries. The funds will sustain life-saving relief in emergencies where human suffering is alarmingly high, but available resources are critically low. The funding will address three humanitarian priorities:
The El Niño global climatic event has had a devastating impact on tens of millions of people across the globe in 2015 and 2016. East Africa, Southern Africa, Central America, South East Asia and the Pacific Islands, continue to be at risk of extreme weather events, including below-normal rains and flooding. The humanitarian fallout includes increased food insecurity due to low crop yields and rising prices; higher malnutrition rates; devastated livelihoods; increased susceptibility to illnesses, and forced displacement.
APERÇU DE LA SITUATION
La détérioration sécuritaire dans plusieurs territoires et le démantèlement forcé des camps/sites de déplacés a suscité de nouveaux mouvements de population ainsi que la destruction ou la perte massive des biens et services de base.
The response to the recommendations from the synthesis evaluation (global MRP) was prepared by the Funding Coordination Section, in consultation with relevant branches and sections, and reviewed and approved by the Director of Corporate Programs. This draft global MRP was then circulated to the Pooled Fund Working Group (PFWG) for comments and consideration.
As of 31 July 2016, UN-coordinated Humanitarian Response Plans (HRP), Flash Appeals and Regional Refugee Plans as covered by the Global Humanitarian Overview (GHO) require US$21.9 billion to meet the needs of 96.9 million people affected by humanitarian crises in 40 countries. The appeals are funded at $7.2 billion, with unmet requirements totalling $14.7 billion. Overall, donors have contributed $13.7 billion towards humanitarian operations in 2016 and pledged a further $814.4 million.
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.

- Post-Gu assessment projects a gloomy food security outlook
- AWD/cholera cases decline due to robust response
- Humanitarian funding to Somalia declines but needs remain high
