Acute Food Insecurity Classification

Up to 2.1 million people across Somalia are expected to face food consumption gaps, high acute malnutrition, or depletion of assets indicative of Crisis (IPC Phase 3) or worse outcomes through December 2019. Moreover, an estimated one million children under the age of five are likely to be acutely malnourished through mid-2020.[...]

Jul 2019/ Dec 2019

Acute Food Insecurity Classification

Food security is expected to deteriorate in parts of northern and central Somalia from February to June 2019. Many northern and central agropastoral and pastoral livelihoods will deteriorate to Crisis (IPC Phase 3) until May/June, when the onset of Gu rainfall leads to improved livestock productivity, livestock births increasing saleable animals, and increased agricultural labor opportunities. In the absence of assistance, food security outcomes are expected to deteriorate to Emergency (IPC Phase 4) in Guban Pastoral livelihood zone and to Crisis (IPC Phase 3) in central Addun Pastoral, Northern Inland Pastoral, East Golis Pastoral of Sanaag, northwestern Hawd Pastoral, Southern Agropastoral of Hiiran and Bay-Bakool Low Potential Agropastoral livelihood zones. More than 1.5 million pe[...]

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[...]

Jun 2018/ Dec 2018

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[...]

Feb 2018/ May 2018

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[...]

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.
