An elevated risk of famine persists in Somalia due to severe food consumption gaps, high acute malnutrition and high disease burden. The Gu rains (April-June) provided relief in some areas, but the rainy season was shorter than normal and generally poor, including in areas with high levels of vulnerability such as Bakool and northern Bay regions. Over 760,000 have been displaced due to drought since November 2016. More than 3 million people are being reached each month with humanitarian assistance and protection.
