Acute Food Insecurity Classification

Despite improvements, there are pressing humanitarian needs in Somalia according to findings from the post-Gu seasonal assessment conducted across Somalia in June and July 2018. Assessment results indicate food security has continued to improve due to average to above average rainfall between April and June that contributed to seasonal improvements to food and income sources and market conditions and the positive impacts of sustained and large-scale humanitarian assistance. Forecast average to above average Deyr (October-December 2018) rains, off-season harvest and favorable market conditions are expected to contribute to further improvements in the overall foods security condition between now and December 2018. In the absence of humanitarian assistance, food security outcomes are expecte[...]

Acute Food Insecurity Classification

According to data from the December post-Deyr assessment, food security and nutrition outcomes have improved in several areas, and fewer households are reporting moderate or severe hunger in Bay Agropastoral and Northern Inland Pastoral. In most livelihood zones and IDP camps, Food Consumption Score (FCS) and Household Hunger Scale (HHS) pointed to Stressed (IPC Phase 2) or Crisis (IPC Phase 3) outcomes, though in a few areas FCS pointed to Emergency (IPC Phase 4). Of the 30 SMART surveys conducted between November and December, a ‘Critical’ (15-30%) prevalence of Global Acute Malnutrition (GAM), as measured by weight-for-height z-score (WHZ), was reported in eight areas. This is a notable improvement from the 2016/17 Deyr, when a ‘Critical’ prevalence of GAM (WHZ) was recorde[...]

Acute Food Insecurity Classification

Based on 2017 Post Gu season assessment conducted across Somalia in July, an estimated 6.2 million people were acutely food insecure. This includes 3.3 million people in Crisis (IPC Phase 3) and Emergency (IPC Phase 4) and an additional 2.9 million people that have been classified as Stressed (IPC Phase 2). During the projection period from August to December 2017, the number of people that are acutely food insecure will remain 6.2 million. However, there will be only a modest decline in the number of people in Crisis (IPC Phase 3) and Emergency (IPC Phase 4) from 3.3 million in July to 3.1 million between August and December. UBRAN AND INTERNALLY DISPLACED PERSONS (IDPs) Nearly 2.2 million people in urban areas across Somalia were acutely food insecure in July, including 33 000 peopl[...]

Acute Food Insecurity Classification

As severe drought grips most parts of Somalia, food crisis is worsening in rural areas following consecutive seasons of poor rainfall and low river water levels, which led to near total crop failures and reduced rural employment opportunities, widespread shortage of water and pasture, consequent increases in livestock deaths, and rapidly diminishing food access among poor households as staple food prices continue to rise sharply and livestock prices decrease significantly. Rising food prices are also affecting food access among displaced and poor urban households. Total loss of livestock and destitution have been reported in some northern pastoral areas. There has also beefrom parts of Bakool and Bay Regions towards urban areas in Gedo, Lower Shabelle and Banadir.   In the lea[...]

Acute Food Insecurity Classification

The Post Gu seasonal food security and Nutrition assessment reports that approximately 1 096 000 people face Crisis (IPC Phase 3) and 43 000 more people will be in Emergency (IPC Phase 4) across Somalia through December 2016 according to the latest findings from a countrywide seasonal assessment. Additionally, 3.9 million people are classified as Stressed (IPC Phase 2) through the end of the year, bringing the total number of people facing acute food insecurity across Somalia to five million. Compared to six months ago, these figures represent an increase of approximately 20 percent in the number of people in IPC Phases 3 and 4 and a five percent increase in the number of people in IPC Phase 2 since. Acute malnutrition has worsened and remains high in many parts of Somalia. Results from [...]

Results from 30 separate nutrition surveys conducted by FSNAU and partners between in June and July 2018 indicate that the overall nutrition situation in Somalia has continued to improve due to a combination of improved food security conditions, reduced outbreak of diseases and sustained humanitarian interventions. However, high level of acute malnutrition tends to persist in several population groups due to underlying/structural causes.
