Innovations in cash assistance help drought-stricken Kenya
Description: Half of Kenya is affected by severe drought and the government has declared a national drought emergency. The pastoralist Turkana have been particularly hard hit and it is women who often bear the burden of collecting water. With EU humanitarian funding, OXFAM has introduced an innovative way of ensuring access to water for drought-stricken communities. The E-wallet - an electronic card loaded with cash - provides beneficiaries relief when natural water sources have dried up and there’s no cash to buy water. The system has been rolled in Kenya’s Turkana county. Video by OXFAM

How e-vouchers are transforming market shopping in DRC
Description: DR Congo has the sad honour of topping the list of countries with the most internally displaced people. More than half a million of the 3.8 million displaced live in the North Kivu province, where a whole host of armed groups continue to terrorise the population. With populations constantly on the move, EU humanitarian funds are channeled towards appropriate forms of emergency assistance. The Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC), is piloting the distribution of e-vouchers and organises food fairs. This is a fast and safe way of providing both the displaced and host communities with food and basic household items. Video by NRC

Recovery in Somalia: How Do We Sustain Gains Against al-Shabab?
Description: Somalia’s tenuous progress toward stability will only be sustained if the newly elected government steps up delivery of desperately-needed services to its citizens, offering a viable alternative to al-Shabab extremists. Yet six million Somalis are at risk of famine due to drought, and the looming drawdown of the regional peacekeeping force, AMISOM, threatens to derail the country’s fragile transition if the training of Somali forces is not expedited. Former Somali Minister of Planning and International Cooperation Abdirahman Yusuf Ali Aynte (Abdi Aynte) and U.S. Institute of Peace President Nancy Lindborg will discuss the challenges and potential solutions in a webcast conversation. Post your question for the discussion on Twitter (with #USIPSomalia) or with YouTube chat.

Somalia: the fight to keep famine and disease at bay
Description: Somalia is one of four countries in Africa and the Middle East #facingfamine as a result of drought and conflict. While half of Somalis are facing food shortages, thousands of cholera and measles cases are adding to their woes.

It is mainly being used to give drought displaced people cash, ensure access to safe water, and provide treatment for malnutrition, cholera and measles. Video by UNICEF

Global Food Assistance Outlook Brief (July 2017)
Description: This month's overview summarizes FEWS NET’s most forward-looking analysis of projected emergency food assistance needs in FEWS NET coverage countries, including East Africa, West Africa, Southern Africa, and Latin America and the Caribbean. Large needs will persist in parts of Yemen, Nigeria, South Sudan, Ethiopia, and Somalia where conflict, and the impacts of drought on pastoralists will continue to drive acute food insecurity. A confirmed presence of fall armyworm in parts of West, East, and Southern Africa is likely to affect crop production. FEWS NET will continue to monitor the situation in the coming months. An El Nino is no longer anticipated to occur in the coming months and seasonal forecasts indicate average to above-average rainfall in parts of the Horn of Africa during both the June-September and October-December rainy seasons. This should have positive implications for livestock production, agricultural production, and livestock-to-cereals terms of trade. However, in pastoral areas where significant livestock sales and deaths occurred due to drought, several consecutive good rainy seasons are needed before herd sizes return to normal and food access improves.
