Based on early predictions for the upcoming Gu rainy season (April-June), the Food Security Analysis Unit for Somalia (FSAU), together with FEWS NET/Somalia, is issuing an early warning that parts of Southern Somalia are at High Risk of Famine/Humanitarian Catastrophe from July to December 2006. This is mainly due to severe lack of access and availability of both food and water resulting from an abnormally severe drought and persistent civil insecurity.
Highlights: Post Deyr 2005/6 Seasonal Assessment
Following early indications of a seriously deteriorating food security situation in Southern Somalia, FSAU and FEWSNET began to issue early warnings in November '05, advanced the timeline of its Deyr assessment fieldwork, and expanded both the duration and coverage of field work in the South in order to generate a more in-depth understanding of the rapidly evolving crisis. Fieldwork by FSAU with FEWSNET Somalia and another forty different partners was undertaken throughout December '05.

This month, the 'Nutrition Update' focuses on an analysis of some interesting nutrition surveys in Somalia, Kenya and Ethiopia. On a positive note, the situation in Somalia appears to be somewhat better than in neighbouring countries. However, total acute malnutrition rates of 15% can never be considered 'acceptable' or 'normal', therefore we need to use this period of relative food security to focus on longer-term interventions aimed at addressing some of the underlying causes of malnutrition.
