Présentation
FSNAU estimates that 221,000 people within the rural (140,000), urban and IDPs (81,000) in Bay region are in humanitarian crisis. The crisis is driven by failed 2010 Deyr rains, harsh Jilaal and poor Gu 2011 rains. Labor opportunities for income are limited, as farming activities have reduced, affecting women who are pillars in providing food for the families. Malnutrition has deteriorated to very critical such that one in four children is affected.
This project targets 2170 vulnerable households, providing them with vouchers to access food that is available from the local markets. Project targets population in food crisis across the agro pastoral livelihoods in Dinsor and Qansadheere districts of Bay region. Women are primary food producers & responsible for feeding their families are most affected and will be prioritized during registration of beneficiaries. Target households are expected to be meeting 20-30% of their food needs. Since markets are functional, the project will provide selected families a serialized food voucher of USD 61/month for 3 months to be redeemed at selected shops.
COOPI is implementing the following activities to improve access to basic needs and services for the vulnerable pastoralists, agro-pastoralist households in Dinsor and Qansadheere districts. The proposed activities build on on-going activities and complement the current initiatives to address food needs that have escalated due to persistent drought.
