Contexte
The FSNAU Post Gu 2012 analysis classified the food security situation in the agro-pastoral population in Lower Juba as in Emergency, Despite improvements in parts of Juba region, substantial food and income gaps still existed. Civil insecurity and closure of Kismayo port activities resulted in low trade activities and loss of employments from charcoal exportsFSNAU Gu 2011/012.. The food security and nutrition situation in lower Juba region changes from time to time and largely is linked to rainfall performance and its resultant effects . The agropastoral communities, rely on rain-fed agriculture, that is totally dependent on rainfall . The FSNAU Post Deyr ’12/13 analysis indicated that a total of 73,000 people were stressed and 16,000 were in crisis. Poor nutrition situation in Lower Juba regions has been caused by poor rainfall which has resulted to food insecurity resulting in high morbidity.Following the continuous rainfall variation performance Afmadow district has experienced poor crop havest and livestock production as well as loss of livestock,resulting to less milk produced and limited diversified foods at household level. Due to insecurity, it was not possible to conduct SMART surveys in Lower Juba regions in 2012/2013, however according to MUAC assesment findings from Lower Juba health facilities, indicated a very likely critical nutrition situation with muac levels ranging from 9.6 to 18.7.The reduced humanitarian interventions (health and nutrition services)

Data from health facilities together with rapid MUAC assessments to estimate the situation.FSNAU post Deyr 2012/1013 classifiede nutrition situation as likely Very Critical among the agro-pastoralists.Nutrition data from health facilities indicate high numbers(>30 percent) but a declining trendof acutely malnourished children. The population still remains highly vulnerable to shocks.current risk factors are : reduced access to humanitarian services,high morbidity ,AWD and measles outbreaks, poor access to health care services and sanitation, sub-optimal child feeding and care practices having direct impact on the health and nutritional status of children affecting their growth and development, hence. The key reference nutrition indicators used for Acute malnutrition by MUAC(<12.5 or oedema in rapid assessment was 14.4 and Acute malnutrition by MUAC(<12.5 or oedema was 2.8.SORDES will operate 1SC, 3OTP and 1 MCH in Xagar and target 970 boys and 970 girls, 1,888 PLWs.
