Contexte
Somalia is grappling with the effects of the 2010/2012 famine. The FEWSNET/FSNAU/FAO report May’13, shows death toll at 244000 to 273000 people majority children < 5years.This emergency occurred against a backdrop of insecurity, inaccessibility, high levels of malnutrition and a population whose resilience had been weakened by a protracted crisis due to armed conflict, natural disasters and adverse economic conditions. UNHCR reports 1.7 million people at risk of falling back into crisis if not supported to meet their basic needs and build up their livelihoods. Shalambood town located in Marka district and is home of over 30,000 people (IDPs from Kismayo, host community members and Agro pastoral families). Freed from capture by Alshabaab access to water, sanitation and hygiene WASH services is a big challenge with the nearest water source 8Km away exposing women and girls to SGBV. Garowe IDPs and host community risk health problems due to lack of acceptable and appropriate WASH services. The need to access appropriate, acceptable & sustainable WASH services remains high on the agenda of aid in Somalia. Lack of essential services is linked to disease outbreaks affecting the health of at risk groups. Loss of animals has often reduced the nutritional status of households. Access to WASH services remains critical as a life-saving initiative. This project intends to respond to the needs of the right holders in line with the pillar 4 of the governments 6 Pillar Policy Framework

Présentation
NCA field offices in Garowe & Mogadishu have 11 staff. Beside direct implementation, NCA works with Local partners for great reachability. Baniadam in L.shabelle has worked with NCA over 5 years. According to rapid assessments conducted by baniadam/NCA in May13, out of a population of 30125 people, 19518 people in Shalambood town are water scarce surviving on less than 4 liters per day ,due to lack of adequate water sources. Water costs USD 0.06-0.125 for 20L jerican. Hygiene knowledge is good but practice very poor with open defecation common leading to increased diarrhea cases. Garowe population is 57991 according to UNDP 2005. Out of an urban population of 33395, 19620 people are water scarce with unfavorable sanitation & hygiene conditions. The project will improve the protection environment for men, women, boys & girls free from SGBV incidents. Capacity to manage WASH is lacking as evidenced by existing facilities. Consultation included the WASH team, Local authority, religious leaders, elders, youth & women. Activities include construction of 1 borehole in Marka, latrines construction 50m away from shelters, extend water supply to 2 IDP camps, hospital & school in Garowe, Distribute HHWT filters, latrines/ hand wash facilities in schools, Distribute sanitary kits to women IDPs, WES/hygiene training, capacity built NCA/partners on CLTS, sanitation kits provided for clean up campaigns & conduct hygiene education campaigns to reduce health related risks in target areas.
