NAIROBI/WASHINGTON FEBRUARY 3, 2012 – Recent analysis by FAOS’s FSNAU and FEWS NET confirm that Famine outcomes no longer exist in Southern Somalia, yet nearly a third of the population remain in crisis, unable to fully meet essential food and non-food needs. Based on the latest assessment findings, Mogadishu IDPs, Afgoye IDPs, and agropastoral households in Middle Shabelle (populations formerly classified as IPC Phase 5 – Famine) have now improved to Emergency-level food insecurity (IPC Phase 4).
- EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
1.1 KEY FINDINGS
Given the severity of current and projected food insecurity in Somalia, FEWS NET and FSNAU will jointly release updated food security and nutrition reports every ten days. The objective of this enhanced monitoring is to ensure that new information is incorporated into analysis and shared as rapidly as possible in order to inform decision‐making related to humanitarian assistance.

Disclaimer: This paper addresses some of the issues related to the market feasibility of cash transfers. It does not consider issues related to the mechanism by which such transfers could be provided nor does it explore other aspects of the local context, including security and conflict, which would affect the overall feasibility of a cash-based response program. As with all information on southern Somalia, the situation is changing constantly and available information may not fully reflect current conditions.
June 20, NAIROBI –The humanitarian crisis in Somalia is expected to deepen in the 2nd half of 2011 with food prices hitting a new record high, the United Nations warned on Monday. This is following two consecutive poor rainy seasons, -- depriving many more people of food in the Horn of Africa nation.
The number of Somalis in need of emergency humanitarian assistance is now 2.5 million, a 25 per cent increase since mid 2010, representing 1 in 3 of the population, and expected to increase in coming months, once the full impact of the poor rains is determined.
