Contexte
According to FSNAU (April 29, 2013), the number of people in acute food insecurity has halved to almost one million (IPC phases 3 and 4) between August 2012 and February 2013. There are approximately 1.1 million IDPs within Somalia (USAID, April 2013). Hiraan region hosts an estimated 51,000 IDPs (UNHCR, September 2012). The WASH Cluster categorized Beletweyne as high risk areas for Acute Watery Diahorrea (AWD) and Cholera (CHF Oct. 2012). Up to the end of September 2012, WASH Cluster partners ensured access to sustained water interventions for 34,360 people (28 per cent) of the end year target 120,181 people). Temporary water was made available to 90,471 people or 75 per cent of the end year target of 120,181 people. Specific interventions continued in flood affected areas in September 2012. Mudug region hosts 84000 IDPs (UNHCR October, 2012) settled in 27 camps (14 in North and 13 in South Gaalkacyo) (Humanitarian Gap Analysis Report, November 2012). FEWS NET (June 2013) reports that, in Mudug dry weather with strong winds with poor rains, persisted for all of May causing accelerated water depletion. OCHA (October 2012) advised that an estimate of 61% of the population in Mudug will require humanitarian assistance in order not to slide to worst critical situation over the next period and that the focus should remain on access to sustainable water such as the protection of shallow wells to improve community resilience

Présentation
DRC has offices in Beletweyn and Gaalkacyo and a large WASH team (international wash coordinator, engineers, officers and hygiene promoters) representation in the SAG and a focal point in Gaalkacyo. According to a household survey by DRC (April 2012) with a sample of 1200 people (970 women), 70% of the respondents used less than 15 l/p/d with 68% not treating drinking water. In Hiraan and Gaalkacyo, 35% and 29% respectively practiced OD. The WASH Cluster categorized Beletweyn as high risk area for AWD and Cholera (CHF Oct, 2012) attributed to drinking water from unprotected shallow wells and the river (OCHA, October 2012). The recent floods destroyed 70% of the latrines and shallow wells worsening the situation (OCHA, October 2012). In March and April, local health officials reported more than 550 cases of AWD in Beletweyn (USAID, April 2013), highlighting the need for sustainable water supply, improved sanitation facilities and hygiene promotion among the residents. In Gaalkacyo, the Humanitarian Gap Analysis (November, 2012) identified limited coverage of WASH facilities in some IDP settlements ; with 44% (over 600 latrines) of latrines not functional ; citing limited access to water ; and low level of safe hygiene practices ; increasing their susceptibility to public health diseases. Poor households are unable to reliably access the facilities due to their high costs. Women IDPs are at higher risk of GBV when WASH facilities are not close to their houses
