Somalia: Humanitarian Snapshot, April 2014 | Issued on 16 May 2014

Originally published


Somalia is at risk of sliding back into crisis because its fragile food security situation is likely to deteriorate in the coming months. This is due to a combination of delayed rains, rising food prices and continued conflict especially in agro-pastoral areas of southern and central Somalia. Conditions are worryingly similar to the pre-famine period of 2010. Despite the serious situation, funding for Somalia in 2014 is critically low.
