Support to Drought and Conflict Affected Population in Southern Somalia

Projet terminé

Recurrent droughts are a key factor affecting Food Security and Livelihood in El Barde District, considering that 80% of the population are pastoralists who depend on livestock and derived product. After coping mechanisms have been eroded both local and displaced pastoralists depend on humanitarian assistance. The intervention strives to reduce that dependency by rebuilding and enhancing the resilience of pastoralist livelihood.

The devastating drought in 2011 severely affected 13 million people in the Horn. Especially in Somalia the enduring conflict has further exacerbated the humanitarian crisis in the country. While over the last months, the food security situation has improved in most regions, large parts of South Central Somalia, remain in a crisis/emergency phase.

Principaux résultats antérieurs:
