Most rural livelihoods are expected to see marked improvements in their food security situation as a result of good seasonal performance of the Gu (main rainy season), according to results of the rapid preliminary assessment carried out by FAO.

Some deterioration of the food security situation is however expected in the agropastoral areas of Hiraan that experienced poor rainfall as well as the flood affected riverine areas in Jowhar (Middle Shabelle). A slight deterioration is also likely in parts of pastoral livelihoods in Mudug and Bari regions. The deterioration in these areas is attributed to poor performance of Gu rains, which affected pasture availability and crop performance.
