The number of people in need of humanitarian assistance in Somalia has reduced by half to 1.05 million since August 2012, according to the latest data from FAO’s Food Security and Nutrition Analysis Unit (FSNAU) with the Famine Early Warning Systems Network (FEWSNET).

Malnutrition rates however remain among the highest in the world. Humanitarian assistance to protect livelihoods, reduce acute malnutrition, and help the most food insecure populations is still needed based on the latest projection.
