- Somali people are facing one of the worst humanitarian crises in the world today.
Somalia is the country generating the highest number of refugees in the world, after Afghanistan and Iraq.
- Wheat prices in international markets
continued to rise through the end of 2010 and into 2011,
presumably raising the cost of imported wheat in the Middle East and North Africa.
- In the region, general inflation has been high in the past decade and some governments responded to the
recent hike in international food prices through lowering food import tariffs and increasing food subsidies.
- The most vulnerable countries appear to be Iran, Pakistan, Egypt, and Sudan. Other vulnerable countries
could be Djibouti, Yemen, Iraq, Jordan, Mauritania, and Syria.
- There is significant danger of focusing
only on agriculture rather than a more integrated rural development that
enables people to secure good productive jobs in agriculture as well as
in other sectors.
- The key to developing a vibrant agriculture sector will be making investments that help people do things other than agriculture.

NAIROBI, 16 October (IRIN)- Interim president Abdiqasim Salad Hasan arrived in Somalia's devastated capital on Saturday to an ecstatic public welcome and huge show of force. But his "hero's welcome", as reported by the local and international press, is chiefly symbolic of high expectations by a people desperate for real leadership after a decade without a central government.
