Somalia: Humanitarian Dashboard - October (issued on 27 November 2013)



The humanitarian crisis in Somalia remains one of the largest and most complex in the world with climatic shocks, armed conflict and protracted displacement. While over 3 million people still require humanitarian assistance, humanitarian access remains extremely challenging.

In October, Jowhar and Balcad districts in Middle Shabelle region experienced flooding due to seasonal rains leading to temporary displacements in some villages. Humanitarian partners have worked to provide assistance to the affected people, despite logistical challenges and localised insecurity.
