Contexte
The recent report from FSNAU indicate that Famine conditions are no longer present in Somalia. Nevertheless an estimated 2.3 million people(31% of the population) are in need of life saving assistance and 73% (1.7 million) of the population in crisis are in Southern Somalia. The malnutrition and mortality rate remain at unacceptable level. About 325000(70% in South) children are acutely malnourished and are in need of specialized nutritional treatment. These revelations emphasize the need for continued support to ensure that the fragile gains are not reversed and Somalia does not relapse to famine. The Population in Lower Juba has been identified to be in three different phases of Stressed, crisis and emergency with 34% of the population in Lower Juba in emergency or crisis (IPC February 2012 FSNAU). This situation is likely to be exacerbated due to the expectation that the GU rains will underperform(FSNAU report) thus the need for extra support. The Joint rapid need assessment of Lower Juba by Local Organizations with the support of UN OCHA also revealed unacceptable levels of malnutrition and mortality rates in the area and an escalation of commodity prices due to the ongoing fight. the report was conducted and analysed on November 2011 (Find the attached report as document) The situation affected the most vulnerable groups in the community especially women,children and the elderly .

Présentation
Based on the FSNAU Post Deyr 2012 analysis, Despite the respite, the situation in Southern Somalia is wanting and 34% of the population in Lower juba region are in crisis and emergency situation. The report further indicated unacceptable levels of malnutrition and mortality rates in the area. The situation is further likely to be aggravated by the ongoing fight which limited the humanitarian access and escalated the prices of the basic commodities and the expectation that GU rains will under perform. The Joint rapid need assessment of Lower Juba by Local Organizations with the support of UN OCHA also revealed unacceptable levels of malnutrition and mortality rates in the area and an escalation of commodity prices due to the ongoing fight. Need assessment also conducted by Southern Aid in the area indicated that although the needs are not limited to food, it is a priority to stop further deaths and depletion of assets among the agro pastoralists and riverine communities in Kismayo ,Badhaadhe,Afmadow and Jamaame districts of Lower Juba region. The Organization opted for Cash intervention after a chain of discussions with the community leaders, the local authorities and the beneficiaries which proposed the cash method as the most effective and immediate response to the prevailing situation of the area
