According to the FSNAU -Post Deyr ‘11/12 technical series report analysis, the pastoral population in central Somalia in crisis shows a sustained situation since GU 2011.During the previous season there was poor rainfall as well as the continuous civil unrest in the South Central that led to a significant loss of livestock, poor crop production, displacements, and pastoral destitution. The most affected people in the current Somali crisis are the women, children and the elderly, who mainly reside in the pastoral communities.The restriction by militia groups has led to limited access of humanitarian aid. Hence more assistance in the area is needed to reduce the displacement and also have activities that will generate income The FSNAU, post GU 2012 technical series updates shows that in Middle shabelle the population in rural areas in crisis is 25,000, respectively thus requiring emergency assistance. The report indicates that considerable number of people in Adale and Aden Yabaal in Middle Shabelle still remains in crisis. WOCCA’s intervention will target the rural population of the pastoralists in Aden Yabaal and Cadale in Middle Shabelle. These interventions will enable households meet their immediate needs and also re-establish and support their livelihoods. 1342 households (604 men headed households and 738 female headed households) will receive conditional cash through cash for work activities (rehabilitation of water catchments) in Middle Shabelle.By providing cash for work for the communities it will increase their income hence improving their access to food. The BOQs for the water catchments have been attache

Based on the FSNAU Post Gu- 2012 Technical Report (October, 2012), poor pasture was reported in Middle Shabelle specifically in Adale and Aden Yabaal. The conception and calving/kidding projections are low for cattle and medium for the shoats.The region still remains highly vulnerable to shocks and risks due to limited humanitarian assistance and reduced rainfall. The pastoral communities are still unable to cope with the current situation. WOCCA assessments show that drought caused insufficient amount of fodder and water for the herds, leading to chronic weight loss and increased deaths. Many people were displaced and moved to IDP camps while others moved to other districts in search of pasture and water for their livestock while others lost their lifes due to hunger and malnutrition. The assessment team’s reports also indicate that most of the people in Adale depended on fishing, however after the Tsunami ; fish quantities reduced thus affecting their livelihood. The community now rare livestock which include shoats along the coastal regions, since pasture and water, is available. During the last GU season for 2012, the area did not receive enough rainfall which was less than 150mm. Many livestock died, while people moved to other areas like Mogadishu to look for job opportunities and also look for pasture and water for their remaining livestock. WOCCA is hence targeting a total of 1342 households, 604 men headed households and 738 pastoral female headed households who will receive conditional cash through cash for work activities. GPS coordinates for the water catchments cannot be provided because they are in Al-Shabab controlled areas, but the coordinates for the villages have been attached.
