Présentation
Somalia, a least-developed country and a low-income food-deficit country, is one of the world’s most food insecure countries and particularly vulnerable to recurring natural and man-made disasters. In the pastoral and agro-pastoral areas of Sool, Sanaag, South Mudug, Galgaduud and Hiiran regions, communities are totally dependent on livestock production for their survival. The combined effects of consecutive seasons of failed or poor rainfall, conflict, floods, rising inflation, displacement, and diarrheal disease outbreaks have severely exacerbated food insecurity and resulted in a significant increase in acute malnutrition rates. Since two years there has been a serious erosion of livelihoods, with consequent high levels of extreme poverty and destitution. The epicenter of the humanitarian crisis is in Mudug, Galgadud, Hiran and Bakool regions of south and central Somalia, where there has been a two and a half year ongoing drought with up to 65% of the total population in crisis, of which most, or 73%, are in Humanitarian Emergency. The drought has intensified following five consecutive seasons of rain failure. Livestock herds are decimated and destitute pastoralists are gathering in main villages and towns in search of assistance. The nutrition situation is alarming, as most pastoral and agropastoral livelihoods in these areas are classified as Critical, with a risk to deterioration. It is with this background in mind that CERELPA seeks to reduce the extent of human suffering by engaging in the mass treatment of livestock for wounds, internal and external parasites, bacterial infections. The herds will be injected with multivitamins to improve their body condition and resilience. This will benefit 6,200 pastoralist and agropastoral pastoral households as well as 800,000 animals.
