The National Disaster Risk Management Commission (NDRMC) and UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) collaborated in calling DPPB and other woreda officials. In Somali region, also UNICEF, WHO and WFP participated.
Hotspot priority 1 woredas and woredas hosting many IDPs were prioritized for inclusion
Some woredas remain uncovered because of the telephone network and lack of information with DPPB officials
In Ethiopia, the education needs are critical for 1.15 million school-aged children across Oromia and Somali regions. These regions are experiencing the highest number of drop-outs, absenteeism and school closures due to the impact of conflict and drought.
Following the EHCT decision not to invest in permanent water infrastructure in Qoloji IDP sites, the water trucking requirements could increase if Government camp closure plans are delayed. Given that water trucking requested usually peak in March-April, and given current water requirements, continued access to safe water until June for nearly 1.7 million conflict induced IDPS, host communities and severely drought affected people will require some $12.6 million. A full pipeline break in household water treatment chemicals, soap and other WASH items will start in May.
The scale and geographic location of the emergency nutrition response in 2018 will remain in the southern and south eastern belt of the country with pockets areas of the north and east of the country affected by the protracted drought, high IDP burden and high food insecurity. As a result the national projected caseload of children requiring treatment for severe acute malnutrition will remain high at 350,111 and a projection of 3.48 million individuals (children 6-59 months and pregnant women and nursing mothers) will require MAM treatment across 463 priority 1,2 and 3 woredas.
