Somalia: Humanitarian Snapshot, December 2013 | Issued on 14 January 2014
CONSOLIDATED APPEAL (CAP) SECOND YEAR REVISION
The funding appeal for the second year of the 2013-2015 CAP is US$928 million and includes 298 project proposals. There are some 3.18 million people affected by the protracted crisis.
Much of the progress made so far remains fragile and can be countered by shocks related to climate, conflict and economy.The Somalia CAP received just half of the requested funding for 2013. Consequently, it was more difficult for agencies to implement the 2013-2015 strategy of life-saving and resilience.
The second year of the three-year CAP has been revised to reflect current needs, continued efforts to strenghten the resilience of the Somali people and realistic ability and capacity to implement.
POST DEYR EARLY WARNING
According to Food Security and Nutrition Analysis Unit (FSNAU) there is a likely deterioration in the food security situation in parts of southern and north-eastern rural areas of Somalia The anticipated deterioration is due to the adverse impact of floods, clan conflict as well as poor performance of the Deyr rainy season.
Based on the Integrated Phase Classification (IPC) food insecurity severity scale, the current number of people in crisis and emergency is likely to increase in the first half of 2014. However, most livelihoods are still expected to remain in stress.
VOLATILE SECURITY IN SOUTH CENTRAL
Terrorist attacks, kidnappings and detentions of humanitarian staff have been on the increase in 2014. In addition, there have been at least four bombings in the first 10 days of January which has adversely affected humanitarian organizations
