The recent improvements in the humanitarian situation in Somalia are threatened by the poor performance of the Deyr rainy season, particularly for some areas in the North. Furthermore, despite a reduction in the overall number of people requiring assistance (currently, 4.2 million), the figure remains higher than the pre-crisis level from two years ago. That said, markets in Somalia are healthy, as populations continue to enjoy the dividend of a generally abundant 2018 Gu rainy season (April - July).
