FAO in the 2019 humanitarian appeal: Somalia - Humanitarian Response Plan 2019

to assist
3.1 million people

FAO requires
USD 104.7 million

January – December 2019

Recurrent climate shocks, armed conflict and widespread violence perpetuate high levels of food insecurity and malnutrition in Somalia.
Along with sustained humanitarian assistance, substantial investment in resilience building and development will be critical in 2019 to ultimately reduce the impacts of the crisis.


FAO is working with partners of the Food Security Cluster to:

• Improve immediate food security.

• Protect and restore livelihoods, related food and income sources.

• Build resilience against current and future shocks.

FAO also contributes to the Nutrition, Enabling Programmes and WASH Clusters.
