Somalia: Humanitarian Dashboard - August 2014 (issued on 2 October 2014)

SITUATION OVERVIEW

Somalia is again facing a serious crisis due to a lethal mix of drought, surging food prices, rising malnutrition, conflict and funding gaps. Over 3 million people are in need of humanitarian assistance and the numbers are on the rise. With another external shock, fragile gains made since the 2012 famine could be eroded and the country could easily tip back into another devastating emergency.
