KEY ISSUES

According to the post-Deyr 2013/14 seasonal assessment results, in February-June 2014, an estimated 857 000 people are classified in Crisis and Emergency acute food insecurity phases based on Integrated Phase Classification (IPC). In addition, the results of recent nutrition surveys among rural populations and Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) of Somalia (issued by the FSNAU in January 2014), found high rates of acute malnutrition across the country, with a total caseload of 203 000 malnourished children under-five. The estimates of population in Crisis (IPC Phase 3) and Emergency (IPC Phase 4) are likely to remain unchanged through June 2014 as shown by the results of recent rapid field assessments (in March 2014) and a monthly monitoring of food security indicators by the FSNAU.
