Présentation
Recent food security and nutrition assessments reports by Food Security and Nutrition Analysis Unit (FSNAU), estimate that 2.12 million people will remain in acute food security crisis for the August to December 2012 period, a 16 percent reduction from the beginning of the year (humanitarian Dash board august 2012) According to The FSNAU Post Deyr ’11/12 analysis classified the Coastal Deeh of central regions to be in persistent Emergency due to the significant loss of livestock in the past, caused by successive poor rainfall in previous seasons, in addition to widespread civil insecurity, limited humanitarian access and trade disruptions. The pastoralist people of Galagduud region of Somalia need livelihood and food aid support . Food access remains very highly inadequate hence malnutrition remains at high (GAM 16.9) Local cereal prices across Galgaduud are far above average, there is increase (70%)in ToT Goat/Rice(jan-Jun’12), water access is less than 7.5lts ppp. (FSNAU technical report 26 September 2012) Low agricultural activities, crop failures have deprived poor household labor opportunities. Therefore the purchasing power of the poor HHs has been severely affected. These high prices have eroded the value of wages and livestock and, combined with drought has resulted in substantial food deficits. In general poor rangeland conditions, poor milk production, limited livestock holding, sustained high debt levels (USD177), employing distress coping strategies and presence of pastoral destitute worsen the situation Returnees, IDPs and the hosts in these areas have overstretched the social support and other coping mechanisms. FERO field assessment reveals that 34% of households in the target areas are female headed, but presence of alshabab and other religious fundamentalists restrict the movement of women outside homes, this is further undermined during shocks (i.e. natural disasters) as women of Ceelbuur lose control over households’ assets which they would normally manage, therefore their ability to recover and build resilience is limited compared to men, hence this intervention will deliberately target 67% of women led HH to be part of the beneficiaries. The pastoralist in Ceelbuur district have to contend with lack of access to inputs and deterioration of infrastructure that supports, animal husbandry and marketing. Livelihoods have been weakened because of lack of production and families are likely to sell their assets so as to buy the daily bread basket. Further, malnut
