Contexte
The project target areas (Bu’ale, Sakow and Salagle districts) of Middle Jubba region are among the most affected by the prevailing drought in Somalia. They are now facing severe humanitarian emergency and acute food and livelihood crisis. The nutrition situation among the pastoral and agro-pastoral population remain ’serious’ and ’critical’ respectively, as reported in the FSNAU post-deyr analysis 2011. Based on the FSNAU post-gu 2010 technical series report, 43,000 people were in humanitarian emergency in Middle Juba region, among them, 24,000 were from the rural areas where this particular project targets.

Présentation
JCC is proposing this emergency intervention of provision of water and cash-for-work program via voucher system to 24,500 population in the pastoral and agro-pastoral areas. The project will provide water via voucher system for human consumption for 45 days. The water voucher system will support 3,500 drought affected households (i.e. 24,500 people of whom 8,750 and 12,250 are women and children respectively). During the cash-for-work program, JCC will employ 809 casual workers, each from a family (i.e. 5,663 population) for the rehabilitation of four strategic selected communal water pans via voucher system. These 809 casual labors will be employed for days and each will rehabilitate and de-silt one cubic meter of soil per day, thus, in total 24,270m3 of soil will excavated during rehabilitation of the four strategically selected communal dams in Bu’ale, Sakow and Salagle districts. It is expected, particularly through this cash-for-work program, 809 families will have food, water and some income to repay their debts and have their nutrition situation improved and at the same time, the impact of the drought on their livelihoods mitigated and enhance their coping strategies.
