Presentation

NAIROBI JULY 20, 2011 – Evidence of severely reduced food access, acute malnutrition, and crude mortality indicates that a famine is currently ongoing in two areas of southern Somalia: the Bakool agropastoral livelihood zones and all areas of Lower Shabelle. A humanitarian emergency currently exists across all other regions of the south, and current humanitarian response is inadequate to meet emergency needs. As a result, famine is expected to spread across all regions of the south in the coming 1‐2 months.

Highlights

Regional Highlights

The Somali Consumer Price Index (CPI), which measures changes in prices of a fixed minimum basket of goods and services, maintained its upward trend for the fifth month in succession in all regions in February 2011. Month on month inflation increased in all zones, mainly due to the rising prices of sorghum, sugar and milk (Northeast - 9%, Northwest - 6%, South - 5% and Central -2%).

In SoSh areas, the CPI is 151-173 percent above the reference period (March 2007) while it is only 14 percent higher in the SlSh areas.
