Contexte
South Central Somalia is currently suffering a drought of emergency proportions. In Galgadud and South Mudug regions, severe drought has affected the area for 6 consecutive seasons causing failed harvests leading to livestock deaths, migration of communities in search of water, and increasing malnutrition rates among children. All communities - pastoral, agro-pastoral, riverine, urban and coastal livelihood zones – are directly or indirectly dependent on rainfall for food through crop production and pasture and water for livestock. During the drought, a lack of potable water affects food quality and sanitation and thus people’s health, further stressing vulnerable households that struggle to meet their basic needs

Présentation
Save the Children in partnership with CPD carried out a Rapid Drought and Livelihood Assessment in the 3 Districts of Adado in Galgadud Region, and Hobyo and Haradhere Districts in south Mudug regions of Central Somalia, 5th-13th December 2010 (32 HHs and 32 villages in Hobyo, Adado and Haradhere). Respondents identified water sources in the drought and the effects the drought on their lives and their livestock. Water sources (berkhads and shallow wells) are drying up and people are ranging from 15Km-45Km to find water. There is an urgent need to undertake water provision given the current low levels of water available in Adado, Hobyo and Haradere districts. Save the Children’s strategy is to expand the humanitarian support into Galgaduud in 2011. They have been operational since 1992 in neighbouring Hiran and they will use the experience to support CPD as well as to increase the services available to the most vulnerable in the region.
