Présentation
The project target areas (Buale, Sakow and Salagle districts) of Middle Jubba region and ceelbarde of Bakool region are among the most affected by the previous drought in Somalia. These communities have been affected by multiple shocks such as recurrent conflicts and floods that threaten their lives and livelihoods. They are now facing severe humanitarian emergency and acute food and livelihood crisis. Post Gu ‘11 food security analysis showed a drastic deterioration in the food security situation in Juba region and classified the rural livelihoods to be in crisis (Aflc) or Emergency (hE). The urban populations in the two regions of Juba were also classified in crisis (Aflc), Emergency (HE) or Famine. Sixty – five per cent (65%) and 79% of the population in Bakool and Middle Jubba Regions respectively are in crisis . Drought and crop failure in the Middle Jubba/Bakool regions have sharply reduced food access for the local population and threatened their livelihoods. Out of the total 549,504 persons in both Regions , 75,000 are experiencing AFLC, 230,000 HE and 95,000 in a Famine situation. This brings the number to 400,000or a whopping 73%. FSNAU post GU’11 Report No VI.41 classifies the rural livelihoods in Middle Jubba as Famine, AFLC & HE. The food security analysis in Middle Juba shows poor crops harvests estimated at 5% of GU ’2010, and only 8% of the 5-year average. An FSNAU nutrition-assessment indicates a GAM rate of 38.9 and a SAM rate of 17.2 with same rates reading 45.9% 21.9% respectively among the riverine population. Due to lack of health services, poor food access, inadequate sanitation facilities and poor access to safe water ; 155,000 people (65%) in Middle Jubba are in crisis. As a result, the nutrition situation among the rural livelihoods and the IDPs is Very Critical. In Bakool region, consecutive poor rainfall (Deyr ’10/11-and-GU ’11) has resulted in crop failure and loss of livestock, the two main sources of livelihoods in the region. The total rural population in crisis in Bakool increased by over 200% from 95,000 in Deyr’10/11 to 245,000 translating to 79% of the 310,627 (115,000 HE, 80,000 Famine and 50,000 AFLC) people in the region being in crisis. The July 2011 assessment by FSNAU indicated a sustained Very Critical nutrition situation and an increase in the proportion of acutely malnourished children. The rate of crude mortality and acute malnutrition has exceeded famine thresholds among agropastoral population in the Bakool. Nutrition and mortality surveys conducted in August 2011 among agro-pastoralists to monitor the changing situation reported a GAM rate of 41.1% (35.1-47.4) and a SAM rate of 13.1% (10.5-16.2).
