Emergency Access to Food for Famine-Affected Agro-pastoralists in Bakool (Somalia)

Somalie

Titre : Emergency Access to Food for Famine-Affected Agro-pastoralists in Bakool (Somalia)

Pays /Région : Somalie

Code projet : CHF-DMA-0489-191ER

Durée : 24-08-2011 // 24-12-2011

Présentation
The overall food security situation in Bakool region has considerably deteriorated since post Gu 2010 due to the negative effects of poor rainfall performance. According to FSNAU reports, currently 158,546 in rural Bakool are in crisis and famine, with GAM rates as high as 51.7. The current crisis is driven by a combination of factors, including : poor rains resulting in crop failure, reduced labor demand, poor livestock conditions, and excess animal mortality. Additionally, local cereal prices across the whole south regions are far above average, more than 2-3 times of the 2010 prices and still continue to rise. As a consequence, the most vulnerable populations are unable to meet basic food needs and have very little capacity to cope with these food deficits.
GREDO and BWDN propose an emergency food voucher response targeting 1,854 households among the agro-pastoral communities and the extremely vulnerable IDPs in Xudur and Wajid districts of Bakool region. The proposed intervention will target seven locations and is expected to be implemented over a period of five months. The project will provide food vouchers valued at $81.70 every month for a period of 2 months.
