This ALERT is released jointly by the FSAU and FEWS-NET to draw attention to the expected impact on the overall food security throughout Somalia following the worst Gu crop production for 7 years. The most vulnerarble areas have been highlighted in the accompanying map.

HIGHLIGHTS

RAINFALL : In southern Somalia poor Gu rainfall has badly affected agro-pastoralists in Gedo, Bay , Bakool as well as Hiran. In Northern Somalia, the Gu season has brought poor rains to most areas, with the exception of Sanag and Bari regions. The early arrival of the windy Hagai season has accelerated an early drying up process.

OVERVIEW
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.
