Contexte
After 21 years of violent conflicts, Somalia has formed a legitimate Government in Sept 2012 and there is growing hope that the Country is progressing towards peace, reconcillation and stability. A new adminsitration for Jubaland was elected in May 2013 and this is exepcted to improve the security situation further and enhance humanitarian access. According to FSNAU post deyr analysis released in March 2013, 1.05m people are in need of humanitarian assistance. In the projection to June 2013, in Afmadow rural 2000 people are estimated to be in crisis while 14,000 will be stressed. According to FSNAU, though no nutrition survey were conducted, the situation is likely Critical in the pastoralist communities in Juba. This indicates a sustained nutrition situation in the respective livelihoods since Gu 2012. The population in Juba regions still remain highly vulnerable to shocks and the current risk factors are : reduced access to humanitarian services, high morbidity burden including the reported AWD and measles outbreaks, poor access to health care services and sanitation, sub-optimal child feeding and care practices which all have a direct impact on the health and nutritional status of children. The WASH cluster has prioritised the target for WASH response. With boreholes spaced at a distance of more than 100km in most of the places, there is sustained acute water shortage in the area which undermines ability of people to practice minimum sanitation and hygiene.

Présentation
Target area receives 250 mm to 300mm of rainfall annually. Boreholes are concentrated in the urban area of Dobley and Afmadow .Turbid and highly saline water pans are the main sources of water in the rural area.They,however, hardly last the entire dry season. People are often thrown to acute water shortage two months to the next wet season. Assessments conducted by SAF in March 2013 indicates there is insufficient safe drinking water resulting in a number of cases to the under fives and pregnant and lactating mothers. In sufficient water causes boys and girls school drop out.In pastoral andagro- pastoral juba the GM rate among the under 5 children is 15.8%(boys-17.6,girls-13.9) and 25.1%(boys-30.9,girls-19.8) respectively.Proportions with MUAC<11.5cm and oedema are 4%(pastoral),2%(agro-pastoral)and 3.2%(riverine). Severely malnourished under 5s are 2.1(pastoral),5.8(agro-pastoral) and 6.6(riverine). Currently morbidity among the under 5 children in the pastoral,agro-pastoral and riverrine livelihoods stands at 31.2%,16.7% and 42.4% respectively.Diarrhea cases among the same groups 11.9%,9.6% and 8.7% respectively.Death rate per 10000 per day among the under five year is 0.81%,0.85% and 1.16% for the pastoral,agro-pastoral and riverrine respectively while pregnant and lactating women with MUAC<23cm account for 43%,26% and 26.3% for the three respective zones.Among the IDPS, Dobley has high cases of under 5 morbidity(49.6%),diarrhea(27%),and pneumonia(23.4%).
