Middle and Lower Juba regions have three main rural livelihood zones namely : the pastoral (the Southern Inland and Southeast Pastoralists), agro-pastoral (Lower Juba andSouthern Agro-pastoral) and the Riverine communities who are purely agriculturalists. The Juba regions in southern Somalia have a total of seven districts namely : Sakow, Buale and Jilib in Middle Juba. The FSNAU Post Deyr ’11/12 analysis has classified the food security situation of rural livelihoods of Juba regions in three phases : Crisis/, Emergency/ and Stressed/ and the urban populations in either Emergency/ or Stressed/. Currently, a total of 169,000 people are in livelihood crisis and in need of humanitarian assistance and livelihood Among the pastoral population, a GAM rate of 27.3% (23.0- 32.0) and a SAM rate of 9.5% (7.1-12.8) were reported, which when compared to the July ‘11 GAM and SAM rates of 39.5% (35.9-43.2) and 18.7% (15.8-21.98.5) indicate a sustained Very Critical nutrition situation, with a significant decline in acute malnutrition rates (p<0.05). The crude and under five death rates are 0.93 (0.52-1.34) and 2.76 (1.41- 4.12) respectively, indicating acceptable and alert situations. (UNICEFF 2005). Nutrition data from health facilities in the Juba riverine, pastoral and agropastoral livelihoods all indicate high numbers (>30%) and an increasing trend of acutely malnourished children

The post Deyr assessment conducted by FSNAU 2010/2011 described Nutrition situation of children and PLWs in Sakow as very critical with estimates The Post Deyr ‘11/12 integrated nutrition situation analysis, using data from nutrition assessments, health and feeding center facilities classifies the nutrition situation of the Middle pastoral, agro-pastoral, and riverine livelihood populations in a sustained Very Critical phase.
Since 2011 HARD has been running emergency nutrition interventions targeting under fives through provision of SFP services in the target areas in Sakow districts with 12 SFP sites and 6 OTPs, supported by UNICEF and HARD want to continue support the existing nutrition sites. HARD is conducting also IYCF is counseling and community mobilization on hygiene promotion awareness covering at target village applying PHAST methodology, HARD will build on the aforementioned intervention in the area to provide a holistic response to the emergencies to affecting drought and conflict populations. HARD believes an integrated, holistic intervention is required to meet the urgent and inter-connected food security, nutrition and WASH needs in gap geographic areas and (for example Nutrition is considered one of primary indicators for the poor children less 5years and PLWs population of target districts and Somalia as a whole.To achieve the intended proposed project objectives, HARD has a trained and qualified nutrition staffs, who did Nutrition project implementation for the last past 8 month and management in place on time and have in close consultation and working hand by hand with respective target community leaders, to promote effective community participatory approach in project planning.The project address the need of OTP and SFP programmes in the Sakow districts,( HARD plans to expend the existing nutrition interventions in order to increase the area coverage and avert the severe impact of the drought in Middle Juba region)
