Contexte
According to FSNAU/FEWS NET Food Security and Nutrition Analysis Post Deyr 2011/12 the food security situation in the Shabelle regions has shown a significant improvement during this season compared to the post Gu 2011. In fact in the Post- Deyr 2011/12 the total number of people in acute food insecurity declined by 80 percent from the previous season. In Middle Shabelle, 80,000 people are estimated in Crisis and 75,000 in Emergency. In Adale and Balad districts (Middle Shabelle), where Famine conditions were reported during the last season, the current situation improved to the Emergency phase. The agro-pastoralists in Jowhar and Balad has improved to Crisis status while the Middle Shabelle riverine population into Stress. These improvements are primarily due to the favourable Deyr 2011/12 rainfalls in most of the livelihood zones, which significantly improved crop pasture and water conditions, and to the humanitarian assistance (rehabilitation of canals, seed distribution, cash for work, etc.) provided since the famine was declared. Milk production increased and cereal production is above average (214% PWA in Middle Shabelle). The cereals availability significantly reduced their prices (60% from July 2011) However the FSNAU Nutrition surveys in Middle Shabelle indicated a GAM of >30 % and 20% among the agro-pastoralists and riverine population in October ‘11. The mortality rates remained stable at 2.00 for the agro-pastoralist population and <2 among the riverine (FSNAU)

Présentation
Based on a rapid assessment done by CEFA staff in the targeted Districts (see enclosed doc) it appears that the agro-pastoralists would be in need of unconditional cash distribution to have access to the available food in the area. However the area is controlled by the AS who tends not to approve such types of interventions. For this reason it was proposed to do cash for work rehabilitating canals in Balcad and water catchments for livestock in Adale and Adan Yabal Districts. CFW will be done following FAO guidelines. The ultimate number will however be confirmed during the initial mobilization. Distribution of maize, sorghum and sesame seeds would be also required to provide long term support to the beneficiaries. This type of intervention will possibly be pursued during the next seeds distribution by FAO with the same beneficiaries.
